Shot in a not very well known area of Burgundy called Morvan, the film talks about two worlds in collision: that of Nico (Clovis Cornillac), a rural veterinarian who begins to be overcome after the retirement of his partner, and that of Alexandra (Noémi Schmidt), recently graduated, bright, misanthropic and with no desire to return to the town of her childhood.
«We want to reconnect with nature, for me it was one of the reasons why I wanted to write this film and then I realized that many people feel the same way, there is a kind of nostalgia for the countryside and with everything that has happened in the last year even more, “says Manoukian, referring to the pandemic.
The director was clear that she wanted to do a comedy that would make the viewer feel a little better when leaving the cinema. “It is not a naturalistic film, nor is it gloomy,” he emphasizes. But it was not about offering an overly romantic vision of rural life that does not correspond to reality. “You had to find the middle ground,” he says.
The actress Noémi Schmidt, the daughter of a biologist who grew up in the Swiss mountains, was the ideal candidate for a character who, in addition to having to carry a mouse on her in several scenes and attend a (real) delivery of a cow, has a difficult character.
