Winner of the César Award for Best First Film, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor. A shy young dairy farmer, Pierre, begins to take precautions when word of Mad Cow Disease in France begins to make the national headlines. To the dismay of his veterinarian sister and their parents, his paranoia mounts, but he doesn’t let on that one of their cows is exhibiting symptoms. Obsessed with his herd, Pierre will do anything to save them, and the film brims with suspense and humor as Pierre bumbles his way through concealing his dark secret.
