Pascal, 53, and Carole, 28, are shepherds. In the month of November 2010, they embark on their long winter transhumance: four months during which they will have to cover 600 km in the Swiss-French region, accompanied by three donkeys, four dogs and a eight hundred sheep. An exceptional adventure is about to begin: they brave the cold and the bad weather day in day out, with a canvas cover and animal skins as their only shelter at night. This saga reveals a tough and exacting profession requiring constant improvisation and unflinching attention to nature, the animals and the cosmos. Written by Anonymous

Unexpected exotic!
3 March 2016 | by ggoudet-54406See all my reviews

No need to go to Patagonia, in the steppes of Central Asia to shoot really not ordinary people. That in 2012 people in Europe, Switzerland !, devote their lives to this kind of activity and live in this way there is breathtaking and makes the heart warm. And that the director makes good. little dialogue, everything is in the picture, relations between the couple shepherd or to animals, atmosphere, climate and its rigors, etc. And almost always, the feeling of being in kilometers of civilization as she is always close but that animals should be avoided and the lands of those who refuse pasture. Photography is good even if the filmed scenes are spectacular. But they make good the atmosphere of the place. The steady rhythm of the film follows the sheep and suggests a passing time at a speed that few people know in 2016! A nice slice of life.
