In the aftermath of WWII, strong-willed Antonia (Willeke van Almelrooy) returns to her small hometown where she has inherited her mother’s farm. Joined by her free-spirited artist daughter Danielle (Els Dottermans), the pair ingratiate themselves with the town’s tight-knit and eccentric community. As the years unfold, love and tragedy come to Antonia and Danielle, while they foster five generations of family and create a vibrant circle of strong, liberated women.

Written and directed with quirky charm by Marleen Gorris (Mrs. Dollaway), Film Movement’s  Blu-ray and DVD editions of Antonia’s Line features a new restoration of the film and includes an archival video interview with director Marleen Gorris and a new essay by author film critic Thelma Adams.
