A sentimental education in the form of a herbarium: several voice-overs take turns commentating the journey of a young man who has come to study at a gardening school. The characters never speak as themselves, but nor are they pinned to the wall like taxidermy butterflies: they are overflowing with desires. Through hunters, a planter and a beekeeper, the countryside reclaims its status as a highly erogenous zone. Botany and sexuality flourish in concert in the new film by a great French rural filmmaker.
Born in 1966 in Seine-Maritime, Pierre Creton is an artist and filmmaker. He was a student at the École des Beaux-Arts in Le Havre. In 1991, after graduating, he became a farm worker, taking on a range of jobs from beekeeping to herding cattle, which led him to make films about the master/slave dialectic and the relationship between humans and animals. He lives and works in Normandy in the Pays de Caux region which he never tires of capturing and filming. He has made around twenty films.
