Acclaimed adaptation of the Marcel Pagnol novel, and Best Film BAFTA winner. City-dweller Jean moves his family to the Provence countryside in the 1920s to forge a new life as a farmer. But his proud, cocky neighbouring rival Le Papet schemes with his simple-minded nephew to acquire some nearby land ensuring the novice owner never discovers an all-important natural spring on the property. A wholly captivating, emotionally powerful and beautifully photographed classic epic of innocence, greed, envy and revenge.



  • Price and quality

    £12.99 for a standard definition film? I’d consider paying that for the high definition version. Definitely NOT on my wish list. Shame, as it’s a great film.
  • Amazing Film!!

    This brilliant film is a definite MUST WATCH! I saw it on holiday and loved it. If you're watching it, be sure to watch 'Manon de Source' the epic sequel, full of unexpected twists and surprises!
