Filmmaker Leo is working in the south of France, where he meets the free-spirited shepherdess Marie. Nine months later, she gives birth to their child. But suffering from post-natal depression and having no faith in Leo, Marie soon abandons them. Leo finds himself alone, with a baby to care for.

MUBI's take

Sex! Onscreen childbirth! Sheep! And that’s just the first act. Alain Guiraudie followed up Stranger by the Lake with some bracing modern myth-making. Deftly veering between fantasy and reality, and between comedy and thriller, this is a provocative study in the primality of human behavior.
