Best Shorts Countdown (Talking) #2: The Man Who Planted Trees

Number Two in the Best Animated Shorts (Talking) Countdown is Frederic Back's The Man Who Planted Trees which won the Academy Award in 1988.  This short is based on Jean Giono's short story and was issued with French narration and English narration.  In the English version below, Christopher Plummer narrates.  Fascinating animation with a lot to think about between Elzeard Bouffier's deeds and the narrator's praise of him.  Listen to what the narrator says of Bouffier--what do you think?  Would a man of Faith honor Bouffier in that way?  Why or why not?  Read more here.  Thirty minutes.
