“Sumptuous….in many ways a wonder to see and hear.”—A. O. Scott, New York Times

“Transfixing. A documentary classic that slipped through the cracks.”—J. Hoberman, ARTINFO

An ode to the beauty and simplicity of daily peasant life in rural France, Cousin Jules unfolds over the course of five years, following the lives of blacksmith Jules Guiteaux and his wife Félicie as they tend to daily chores and rituals. Photographed in stunning CinemaScope, Cousin Jules was heralded around the world upon its 1973 debut; nonetheless, it never received a theatrical release in the US until now. (91 mins., DCP)
