French director Claude Berri's stunning adaptation of the acclaimed Marcel Pagnol novel is the winner of numerous international awards and is the world's most popular foreign language film ever.
City-dweller Jean de Florette (Gerard Depardieu) moves his family to the Provence countryside in the 1920's to forge a new life as a farmer.
But his proud, cocky neighboring rival Le Papet (Yves Montand) schemes with his simple-minded nephew Ugolin (Daniel Auteuil) to acquire some nearby land ensuring the novice owner never discovers an all-important natural spring on the property.
