Le beau plaisir

Court métrage documentaire sur la pêche aux marsouins à l'Île-aux-Coudres. Avec un art suprême, les habitants fichent des harts dans la terre boueuse et tendent un piège en forme de cœur. Puis le long des perches, le marsouin s'engouffre, cherche à s'échapper, mais finit par s'échouer au fond de l’embarcation. C'est à ce beau plaisir de la capture du marsouin que nous convie ce documentaire tourné dans la plus pure tradition du cinéma vérité.
