Set deep in the Cèvennes Mountains of southern France, this short, charming classic from 1925 tells the story of a man called Roux, who refuses to fight at the outbreak of war in 1914, instead hiding out in the hills. The people of the valley condemn his desertion, but as the war grinds on they begin to understand Roux's actions, and he appears in the village more often, helping those in need and explaining his choice as a religious one. His arrest at the end of the war is therefore met with sadness and regret, and André Chamson explores questions of perception, morality, and conscience with a lightness of touch.
