Reviews
Mine: Great movie. Wonderful acting, great French country side. Of almost Shakespearian style. Too bad it is in French.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Proud, cocky French farmer schemes with his simple-minded nephew to acquire some nearby farmland by making sure the new owners never discover an all-important natural spring on the property. Richly textured, emotionally powerful adaptation of Marcel Pagnol novel, exquisitely and meticulously filmed, with galvanizing performances--especially by Depardieu as the doggedly optimistic novice farmer. Story continues in MANON OF THE SPRING. Technovision.
