La Fille du Puisatier
France | 2011 | Daniel Autueil

The Well-Digger's Daughter

Moviegoers loved this new French film when we premiered it in October, so we’re bringing it back. Actor Daniel Autueil first gained fame in America in the 1986 Marcel Pagnol adaptation Jean de Florette. Now hestars in and directs his own Pagnol adaptation—a color remake of a 1940 classic by the popular Provençal writer and filmmaker. Set in sun-dappled southern France early in the 20th century, the movie focuses on a working-man and widower with five beloved girls. But when the oldest becomes pregnant by a wealthy boy she loves, he kicks her out of the house—breaking his own heart in the process.
