Jofroi and his mother keep on repeating this to the notary(solicitor) and to the buyer of his garden.But the problem is that in the garden ,there are trees and those trees,Joffroi -who was an ecologist ahead of his time- does not want them to be cut down.Then begins an interminable fight between him and his pal.The vicar intervenes ,which is very funny when you know about the milieu in which Marcel Pagnol was nurtured (for that matter see Yves Robert's excellent "La Gloire de Mon Père "and "Le Château de mon Père" or read these charming memoirs:Pagnol's father Joseph was an anti-clerical die-hard.).Life in the small village of Provence is ,as usual in Pagnol's films ,wonderfully depicted.There's something Christian in the conclusion of this short (50 min)film.
