Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
In this revealing documentary, director Marie-Claude Treilhou returned to her remote home town in the south of France to interview people on what they think of television. Certainly those suave, sophisticated shows out of Paris will just be a bit too much for them, correct?. Surprise! Country bumpkins they are not, and everyone's comments are illuminating both in regard to the programs they watch, but also in how aware they are of television's effect on their lives. These interviews are all the more poignant because now that most of the younger generation has left for work and a life in the city, the older people in the village find that television is often their main source of information on the "outside" world.
