The Home Front (2010)

by Phie Ambo

The Home Front is about conflicts in our private sphere: feuds between neighbors. The film follows Mogens Peuliche, a boundary inspector, who mediates between disagreeing neighbors. We enter the homes of the feuding parties to learn about the conflicts from both sides.
Why is it so difficult to solve a conflict so close at hand?
And what do hedges and fences represent?
Is this really what the conflicts are all about?
