Descriptions

Bernard, a lumberjack, returns home after his day's work. He is surprised by the storm and tries, with several hunters, to seek shelter to protect himself from the rain. Asleep, he dreams, leaning against a tree trunk, Death appears to him, until Saint Hubert (the patron saint of hunters) hunts him. He also invites Bernard to stand, as servants lead him to a castle. Enchanted at first, Bernard finally wants to return to the simplicity of his home.

After a good day's work, Bernard the woodcutter returns home. A group of hunters take a rest on the grass, but a violent storm breaks out and they are looking for shelter. Bernard has fallen asleep and dreams, leaning against a tree trunk, that it is snowing and that Death appears in front of him. Saint Hubert, patron saint of hunters, hunts death and advises him to get up because fortune awaits him. Indeed, servants come to lead him to a castle where a feast awaits him. Only, Bernard has had enough and wants to find his house and the simplicity of it.
