I am taking a moment to pause & breathe in between states. My "Mushroom Hatred Remediation Program" (so cleverly coined by an insightful internet friend) is closing in on its midpoint & I am finding myself very tired & crabby. I am alleviating it by repeatedly watching this movie trailer & restlessly awaiting the film's release... in 2012.
"The story follows a husband and wife who earn a meager living by hunting wild mushrooms. During the warm months, Lucien and Regina gather a diverse bounty of edible fungi from area woodlands and then go door-to-door selling them to upscale restaurants. When winter comes, and mushrooms go into dormancy, the couple must find temporary work as kitchen laborers to make ends meet. They constantly struggle to get by, dependent on variables of rainfall and temperature--living without the protection of any safety net."
