COUSIN JULES

Le cousin Jules

Trailer
Directed by Dominique Benicheti
France, 1972
Documentary
      French
      English

Synopsis

An ode to rural France and the simple joys of life, this glorious masterpiece captures the daily routine and rituals of Jules, a blacksmith, living with his wife, Felice, on a small farm in the French countryside.

Our take

Dominique Benicheti’s undeservedly under-known documentary is a revelation. A truly original encounter with two people and a vanishing way of life, this portrait of a rural farmer and his wife was decades ahead of its time in immersing an audience in the working life of those too often unseen.
