An animated film by Jacques Drouin based on a book by novelist Jacques
Godbout, translated by Sheila Fischman. Capturing all the twists and turns of
this dramatic tale, the acclaimed pinscreen master brings to life the wild
savannahs of Africa and the colours and textures of a Canadian autumn. Antoine
is fascinated with his neighbour, a mysterious character who is rumoured to
have once been a big game hunter. The young boy convinces his new friend to
teach him to hunt. But the lesson Antoine learns from the wise old man is not
at all what he had expected. What Antoine learns is a reverence for life.
