If ’landscape” is no stranger to Pierre Creton’s previous films, he persists with it here, but goes back to school to put landscape to the test through learning about it. In an agricultural school in Yvetot, pupils and teachers recount their experience of the term, its evaluation, its evolution and its future. But the film is not a systematic study of it, nor is it a theme, except in the musical sense, because other landscapes also appear in it – those of teenagers’ faces and their gestures, those of their classrooms, their workshops, their games rooms and their corridors. In short, the memory of a childhood as likely to change as the apparently still geography in which we move about. Images about sensitive time at least as much as about space. Nothing here is imposed.
