Raymond Depardon a suivi pendant dix ans des paysans de moyenne montagne. Il nous fait entrer dans leurs fermes avec un naturel extraordinaire. Ce film bouleversant parle, avec une grande sérénité, de nos racines et du devenir des gens de la terre. "La Vie moderne" est le troisième volet d'une approche du monde rural : "Profils paysans"
Depardon’s eye for detail makes for meticulous portraits. Here he films winter falling on a rural world, still clearly tied to his roots. He meets the men and women living and working there (the final generation) and lending a sincere ear, he gleans a rare and delicate insight into their true feelings and lives. Brazenly nostalgic, this film is gracefully shaped by its landscapes and faces, moving at their own, natural pace. Depardon throws himself wholeheartedly into this “Modern Life”, which makes the vision of its twilight years only more devastating.
