Summary, etc.:
An ode to the simple pleasures of life, Cousin Jules is an immersive portrait of a blacksmith living with his wife on a small farm in the French countryside. Shot in CinemaScope, the film meticulously captures their daily rituals and transforms it into a bucolic symphony of sound and image. Lost for nearly 40 years and now exquisitely restored, Cousin Jules is a timeless masterpiece, a record of a place and a way of a life that has long ago vanished.
