C'est l'histoire de Babine et aussi celle des gens de son village: Toussaint Brodeur l'éleveur de mouches, le Forgeron amoureux de la Veuve de St-Barnabé qui le trompe avec le Vieux Curé, Méo le coiffeur qui maganne la tête de ses clients parce que toujours pompette, Madame Gélinas enceinte depuis vingt ans qui n'arrive plus à faire lever ses gâteaux, la belle Lurette qui pleure son amoureux parti pour la guerre et effeuille sans cesse des marguerites et bien sûr Babine le fils de la Sorcière aux prises avec l'intransigeant Curé Neuf. Ce film c'est l'univers de Fred en images, celui où un taureau est amoureux et où on sème une montre de poche pour y voir pousser une horloge

A charming fairytale about a "village idiot" who is not as idiotic as most of the other people in his village, who believe in witchcraft, and stand by as the parish priest accuses him of urinating in his bottle of milk, and of setting the church on fire. It is worthwhile to view this movie in tandem with the much darker (and more realistic) film, "Aurore."

Babine is an interesting fable coupling benevolent witchcraft with austere Catholicism.
Made in Quebec, it's a good little flick.
