"The paths are rough.

The hillocks are covered with broom.

The air is motionless. How far away

the birds and the springs are!

It can only be

the end of the world, ahead."

Springtime, going to the mountain

Is it right here?

It won't get your backpack wet.

- That's fine.

- Do you want it cold?

It's fine.

Put this by it.

We could add a few oranges.

Is a three-litre bottle

going to be enough?

Wait, your canteen!

Give me a plastic bag so it

won't get your backpack all wet.

Your canteen!

The canteen also.

Hold on!

- Where can I put my things?

- Over here.

Yes, on the table.

You can fit more bottles like this.

Put whatever you need on the table.

- We have apples and oranges.

- Put the food here.

I can't throw away the flies!

They're everywhere!

- Have a nice journey!

- Bye!

...then he grabs it by the tail,

turns it around,

goes down the other side,

and it's done!

I like shearing... I like it!

Yeah, me too.

It's a bloody hard job.

But I like it!

Some of my friends use to

visit me on the way. I like it!

There's an old lady that lives there.

I haven't seen her. She could be dead.

Every year she'd tell us:

"Thank God you're coming through."

Look that grass.

When I come back,

I'm going to stay here.

It's a really nice place.

Yeah, that'd be fucking great!


God damn it!

Come on, Valent, let's go!


They don't even follow God!

Would you mind helping us cross?

Just this stretch to go to Crespi.

Just this stretch to turn?

They'll listen to you, but not to us!

Yeah, all right.

Okay, let's go!

Our misfortune is that we

haven't much money.

What would you do with it?

I'd buy my dog an omelette in

the Vall del Bac!

I bet you've probably never

seen that before.

He had nothing to eat

when he was a kid,

but now he treats his dog

like a gentleman.


On a catalan table there will

always be a "porr" of wine.

Whether you eat cod or mushrooms,

ask for a "porr" of wine.

On a catalan table,

the "porr" is always there.

Don't drink it all at once!

What a guy.

Six and four, ten, fifteen,

eighteen, nineteen, twenty...

twenty one, twenty two...

This guy used to be a shepherd too,

we were from the same village.

We spent quite a few years together.

I was born in Vallfogona.

Vallfogona in Ripolls!

"I would like to marry"

"the daughter of a countryman,"

"with a good sack of money"...

That doesn't sound bad to me.

Money doesn't do anything,

but it helps you live.

He used to be a shepherd,

but now he is a baker!

What a bitch of a change!

These people have to understand

that this is my way of life.

If they tell me:
"You can't go

into the mountains because..."

And that'll happen sooner or later.

Who knows, maybe not,

I mightjust drop dead suddenly!

It didn't happen to my uncle.

He died in the corral

when he was 101. No, wait, 102!

He was in pure agony

and they put him in bed,

but he'd never slept in a bed before!

He had never eaten at a table either!

He never even had a woman!

He didn't even use money.

He never spent a dime.

My uncle was a really strong man!

My feet can't stand espadrilles.

But I have to wear 'em

all the time!

A shepherd's life is the best.

Wearing good shoes

and a backpack all year long.

Just give me

one of those abandoned houses

without a radio or TV set...

Nothing but 5 or 6 women

and good food.

Now that would be great!

Like an elephant lost in the jungle,

nobody knows where you're at...

Not even the Treasury... Nobody!

That's my dream.

Today's not as hot

as it was yesterday.

God damn!

Yesterday was a bitch!
