Jean De Florette (1986): French director Claude Berri's stunning
adaptation of the acclaimed Marcel Pagnol novel is the winner of numerous
international awards and is the world's most popular foreign language film ever.
City-dweller Jean de Florette (Gerad Depardieu) moves his family to the Provence countryside in the 1920's to forge a new life as a farmer.
But his proud, cocky neighboring rival Le Papet (Yves Montand) schemes with his simple-minded nephew Ugolin (Daniel Auteuil) to acquire some nearby land ensuring the novice owner never discovers an all-important natural spring on the property.
A wholly captivating, emotionally powerful and beautifully photographed classic epic of innocence, evil, greed, envy and revenge.
Manon Des Sources (1987): The equally extraordinary, highly successful and award-winning sequel to Jean De Florette based on the classic novel by Marcel Pagnol.
The timeless story continues with the late Jean de Florette's daughter Manon (Emmanuelle Beart), now grown up into a beautiful and free-spirited young shepherdess on her father's Provence farm.
But when she finally learns the tragic truth behind her father's death, Manon plots her revenge on the dim-witted Ugolin (Daniel Auteuil) and the scheming Le Papet (Yves Montand).
A visual feast containing masterly performances leading to a heart-stopping and totally unexpected conclusion, Manon Des Sources - together with Jean De Florette - are universally acclaimed as the best French films of the past three decades.
