Lorsqu'il décide d'adapter son roman, Jean Giono entend bien rester maître de son œuvre. Il impose à François Leterrier son scénario, ses lieux de tournage et ses directives de mise en scène. S'il retrace l'histoire des deux naissances de cette œuvre - le roman (1947) et le film (1963) - Jacques Mény s'intéresse surtout à son côté sombre, alternant interviews et vues sur les paysages désolés de l'Aubrac.
