A father is desperately looking for his son who has disappeared. He questions a barman and a post office employee. The two men's memories could easily have been those of his son. But what's missing is what's most important. And what counts, for each of us.

A text by Robert Pinget.

An honest peasant farmer is taken prisoner by the Germans at the beginning of the First World War. The Kaiser releases him as a propaganda ploy.

Based on a true story.

  Avec Bernadette Lafont

A psychoanalysis and a portrait of agriculture in France, seen through literary myth and actual people.

Cultiver son jardin [Cultivating his garden]
A naive man from the city tries to do just that for a living, and discovers it's far from easy.
Châteaux à vendre [Châteaux for sale]
Traditional farming is on the way out. One man blocks the roads to keep his farm from disappearing, another resigns himself to the inevitable with a forced smile. Don Quixote and Sancho Panza. Which of them is crazier?
La chartreuse de Paradis [The Charterhouse of paradise]
She has no qualifications, but a husband and ten children. She has created a chicken-farm. In the space of 20 years, she has built an empire: a chain of rotisserie hotels. Like Stendhal's Sanseverina, she's got her whole family working for her. Will they have the strength to keep pace with this triumph of industrial agriculture?
Ulysse est revenu [Ulysses is back]
A man comes to the countryside seeking his roots. Will organic farming enable him to find those roots?
Based on an idea by Jean François Chabrun; adapted by Jean Dewever.
