Les enfants du marais by Jean Becker( visu )

"Set in 1932, in a hamlet in the Marais, a quiet region of the River Loire, LES ENFANTS glows with a wonderful bouquet of eccentric friends who all look and behave as though they've never been out of sight of home, or ever wanted to be: Andre Dussollier as a dandy with a wind-up gramophone and a stack of jazz records; Michel Serrault as the self-made man of property; Jacques Villeret, lately seen in Le Diner de cons; and Jacques Gamblin as a contented couple of tradesmen; Isabelle Carre, as a local girl who is Gamblin's unpossessable beloved. Becker fills his frames with lovely landscapes, nice folk, charm, whimsy, gentle humor. The seasons change, but time stands still, since the characters don't know what we do: that Hitler is less than a decade away and the Occupation will turn this little paradise into history. A magical tale of friendship, mortality and the inevitability of fate."--Alexander Walker, BBC Online
