‘Jean de Florette’ Movie Summary
Out in a rural French village, an old man lives on a farm with his only remaining relative. The two men are very interested in an adjoining but vacant property because it has a natural spring they can use to grow flowers for profit. They are soon dismayed to learn a hunch-backed man from the city has inherited this land, and plans to move in. They then conspire to plug the spring so this new man can not water his crops in the hot summer; hoping he will fail and sell the land for cheap. Though they observe his efforts break both his health and his wife and daughter’s hearts, the greedy men only think of the money that water will bring them.
