Jean de Florette is adapted from Marcel Pagnol’s all time classic novel.

Proud, cocky French farmer schemes with is simple minded nephew to acquire some all important farmland by making sure the new owners do not discover a flowing natural spring of fresh water on the property.

The story takes place in a small village of Provence in Occitania, the south of France, shortly after the First World War. César Soubeyran – also known as Papet – and his nephew, Ugolin who has just come home from the battle fields, are desperate to buy a neighbouring farm after hearing of the death of its owner, for its water source.

The farm is then inherited by Jean, a hunchback tax collector from the city and one of the most rewarding roles of Gerard Depardieu, ever.
