About the Movie
This film has been directed by and written by Francis Leclerc, a free adaptation of the eponymous novel by Félix Leclerc, the director’s father.
At the beginning of the century, a small town located on the outskirts of inhabited Quebec. A 12-year-old child is learning about life. Each meeting, each experience contains its lesson. Friendship, love, death, misery, but also happiness are revealed to him in turn. And virgin nature, where one can escape, is at the gates of the small pioneering town… But very quickly has come the moment when childhood becomes “like too narrow a garment” that one must leave. Félix Leclerc proves here that he knew better than anyone how to magnify life, that of humans and that of nature. This chronicle of happy days is also a tender song of the world.
