Célestine comes to a Paris orphanage to take a boy, Paul, back to her country home in the Loire valley. She works for a Count in his 17th century chateau; her gruff husband is the Count’s gamekeeper. Paul explores his new forest home and slowly makes friends with Totoche, a lone poacher, who is at loggerheads with the gamekeeper, but on friendly terms with the Count himself. Totoche helps Paul learn about the forest – and about the complexities of life. But a heavy secret hangs over the estate..…

An unashamedly old-fashioned film, realistically set in the 1920s, with a good story line and striking photography of gorgeous French woodland and wildlife.

At the moment, we would still prefer that you booked, although if you come on spec, we should be able to fit you in. The usual donation applies; masks will be expected and we will still seat you socially distanced! More information is available in Sheepscombe News.
