Jean De Florette

2h 1m Drama, Western 1986

A greedy landowner and his nephew conspire to block the only water source for an adjoining property to bankrupt the owner and force him to sell.

City-dweller Jean de Florette (Gerard Depardieu, Cyrano De Bergerac, Green Card) moves his family to the Provence countryside in the 1920’s to forge a new life as a farmer. But his proud, cocky neighbouring rival Le Papet (Yves Montand, Wages Of Fear, Manon Des Sources) schemes with his simple-minded nephew Ugolin (Daniel Auteuil, Queen Margot, Manon Des Sources) to acquire some nearby land ensuring the novice owner never discovers an all-important natural spring on the property.

Claude Berri’s stunning adaptation of the acclaimed Marcel Pagnol novel is the winner of numerous international awards and one of the world’s most popular foreign language films.
