Jean de Florette / Manon of the Spring

1986 PG

Claude Berri directs this pair of award-winning dramas that tell the story of a farmer who falls victim to a cruel scheme by his neighbors, and the comeuppance later delivered by the man's daughter. In Jean de Florette, two men (Yves Montand and Daniel Auteuil) block the water source that a new farmer (Gérard Depardieu) needs for his crops. In Manon of the Spring, Jean's grown daughter (Emmanuelle Beart) goes after the two men with a vengeance.
