The tension between the big city and the bucolic village has existed since settled societies were formed. In this episode, we explore the depiction of the European countryside in movies: the clichés, imaginations, and twists. PhD candidate Anke Bosma joins Rutger and Gil to share about her research, which covers that topic and was turned into the idea for this episode by Anke. We rely on the movies Hot Fuzz (2007), Welcome to the Sticks (2013), Under the Tuscan Sun (2003), and A Man Called Ove (2015).
