Director: Claude Berri
The film is set in 1900 and while a very detailed description of the life of a French family in the south of France of the time, it is more the story of a young boy’s life. Marcel witnesses the success of his teacher father, whom he admires greatly, as well as the success of his arrogant Uncle Jules. Marcel and family spend their summer vacations in a cottage in Provence, and one day when lost, Marcel meets and subsequently befriends a local boy who teaches him the secrets of the hills of Provence.
