Notes on the film
"Dans le lit du Rhône" set in Valais, Switzerland is a very good film - above all the reference to Switzerland and the profound insight into the well-known theme: what does the intervention of mankind mean for nature? The answer in this case: Flooding, no spawning ground for trout, loss of biodiversity. A calm and simple film with captivating shots of the Rhine river from today and back in the day.
