Antoine Boutet – Le plein pays AKA Full Country [+Extras] (2009)


A man has been living for thirty years as a recluse in a forest in France. Alone, he hews out deep underground tunnels and galleries, which he decorates with his own engravings. They must withstand the planetary disaster that has been announced, and they must explain things, through their perceptive messages, to future inhabitants. The film recounts this experience as lived on the sidelines of modern society, affected as it is by human wretchedness and the loss, once and for all, of a perfect world.

Jean-Marie Massou … Himself

  1. Hi,

    I have a question, and am wondering if you can help me.

    I am trying to find a copy of the film Le Plein Pays by Antoine Boutet from 2009. I see you have an information page on the film, and was wondering if you could help me find a copy of the film/way to contact the director?

    Thank you,
