Claude Berri's stunning adaptation of Marcel Pagnol's acclaimed novel captured the hearts and imagination of audiences around the world upon it's initial release in 1986, winning numerous international awards and becoming one of the most popular foreign language films in history. City-dweller Jean de Florette (Gerard Depardieu, Cyrano de Bergerac, Green Card) moves his family to the Provence countryside in the 1920s to forge a new life as a flower 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. Exploring the formidable rural landscape, Jean de Florette captures one family's noble struggle against the forces of nature and the treachery of man.
