Claude Berri’s autobiographical debut is both a touching vision of pastoral life and a knotty portrait of prejudice without judgment, featuring a late-career turn from legendary French thespian Michel Simon. With his Jewish family burdened by life in Nazi-occupied Paris, eight-year-old Claude (Alain Cohen) is sent to live with a Catholic family in the Grenoble countryside, where he develops an unlikely friendship with the dog-loving anti-Semitic vegetarian Pépé (Simon) who is unaware of his heritage.
