Switzerland, 2012, 1 hour 30 minutes, French with subtitles
This delightful, fly-on-the-wall doc follows grumpy old Pascal and his long-suffering partner Carole as they drive their 800 sheep around the mountains of Switzerland. There are moving reunions with farming families Pascale has known for twenty years, and the inevitable hostility of others who see his flock ‘stealing their grass’. We watch, listen and learn as Pascale’s skills and unflinching attention to the natural world and his animals are revealed, Claire learns the ropes and the cutest puppy imaginable is sheltered in her pocket. Sleeping under the stars, sheltering from the rain, trudging through the snow, their ‘joie de vivre’ transforms this into a magnificent hymn to freedom.
