Jean de Florette

The two-part art house sensation of the 1980s returns! Gérard Depardieu, Yves Montand, and Daniel Auteuil star in this moving, magnificent adaptation of a novel by Marcel Pagnol (The Well-Digger’s Daughter). Set in rural Provence (in the south of France) during the 1920s, the movie tells how a farmer (Montand) and his nephew (Auteuil) conspire to acquire a coveted piece of land—recently inherited by a hunchback tax collector (Depardieu) from the city—by damming a hidden spring and rendering the property arid and infertile. See next blurb for the saga’s conclusion.

Subtitles. 35mm color & scope print! 122 min.
