Directed by Marcel Pagnol. "Legendary French actor Fernandel is an itinerant tinker who decides to “sell” his mistress – a down-on-her-luck cabaret singer played by Orane Demazis – to a wild, hermit-like hunter, the sole resident of his now-abandoned town. The tale of how this unlikely couple find themselves at one with the land – planting wheat, establishing a home, creating a child – is the core of one of the most lyrically poetic dramas in the history of the French cinema."
