| 9 min

Court métrage d’animation racontant les aventures loufoques d’un personnage ingénu au Moyen Âge. Avec ce sens de l'humour qui le caractérise, le cinéaste Richard Condie nous invite à rire des étourderies de l'apprenti. Guidé par un maître qui s'évertue à lui montrer le droit chemin, ce fou du roi se tire miraculeusement des situations les plus périlleuses! Film sans paroles.
