A delightful ode to idleness and simple pleasures, and an implied criticism of materialism, very much in the spirit of the late 1960's, but with more humour than harshness. It tells the story of farmer Alexandre who at the unexpected death of his tyrannical wife, jumps at the opportunity to enjoy life and stops working altogether. He retires to his bed, much to the dismay of his neighbours who feel threatened by his unconventional life choice and try to get him back on the straight and narrow - and to work. A charming movie that questions some of our cultural values and preconceptions in a light, funny way.
It's unbeliavble that this amazing film is not in any list... What a shame!
