This film is based on the best-selling memoirs of French novelist/filmmaker Marcel Pagnol. Among the intoxicating hills of rustic Bastide Neuve, young Marcel and his family experience an unforgettable summer holiday. Marcel, mystified by nature, turns to his schoolteacher father, Joseph, for an education on the ways of the wild. But sadly, Joseph comes up short in the eyes of young Marcel when cantankerous Uncle Jules--an experienced woodsman--proves to be far more knowledgeable. To redeem himself to Marcel, Joseph challenges Jules to a hunting match--a subject he knows nothing about--to prove to his family that once and for all, he is not only the patriarch but a father who deserves respect. Follow Marcel and his family on a journey of self-discovery, humility and love within the beautiful French countryside. 1991, 109 minutes, MPAA rating: G, DVD in French and English, with French, English and Spanish subtitles.
