Le chandail

| 10 min

Ce court métrage d'animation ressuscite l'époque des années 1940, où tous les jeunes étaient subjugués par leur idole, Maurice Richard. L'écrivain Roch Carrier n'y échappa point et il nous livre ici, avec humour et nostalgie, les impressions et les sentiments d'une enfance empreinte des modèles du temps.
