Joseph's age...?
15 September 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I also saw this film in France, in French. I got the impression that the narrator at the beginning was Paulo, and that it was him who was only 17 when the story took place. I guess Joseph was just a farmworker and had never had any formal education and so that's why he was illiterate, I didn't understand the bit about his father dying, but I guess that makes sense, I just assumed he was a transient worker and had no need for education really. I also took a guess that the guy returning in the car 40 years later with the exercise book was the son of Jeanne..... I didn't realise this at the time, it took me a while to figure out the appropriate ages! I loved the film too, despite struggling to understand all of the action!
