Jean de Florette (PG)
Director: Claude Berri
Starring: Yves Montand, Gerard Depardieu, Daniel Auteuil
Comedy Drama | France | 1986
2 hrs | Subtitles

A wonderful story set in rural Provence by a talented French director and based on a novel by Marcel Pagnol. It’s followed by its equally charming sequel (and continuation of the story) Manon des Sources, at the same venue tomorrow (book tickets here), so if you watch one, you will have to watch them both! The two films have now arguably become the highest profile of all Pagnol’s work. Beautifully shot and magnificently acted, the point of this film is not to create suspense, but to capture the relentlessness of human greed. Two provincial French famers systematically destroy the happiness of a man who moves there from the city to farm, but his neighbours have other ideas and want to discourage him so they can buy the land cheap.
