Ten-year-old Ti-Jean's feats dwarf those of even the strongest lumberjack as he fells timber, cuts, carries and piles heavy logs, and comes out the victor in every contest. This short French-Canadian folk tale portrays typical life and work in a winter logging camp.

    My husband saw this film in childhood (he was born the year it was made) and we're so pleased to be able to watch it online. Merci!
