The lives of two newlyweds, Antoine, an alpine shepherd, and Thérèse, are overturned when a landslide swallows the mountain pasture where Antoine is working. Believed to be dead by everyone, Antoine suddenly returns home. In this adaptation of Charles-Ferdinand Ramuz’s novel, Francis Reusser has crafted a sensual alpine western, which competed in Cannes in 1985 and received the César for the best French-language film the following year.
