Performers, Cast and Crew:
"Jean de Florette": In a small village in the Provençal region of France, where water is scarce and the earth dry, only one piece of property possesses an underground spring to irrigate the soil -- and the wily, greedy César will do anything to get hold of it. And his dreams seem on the verge of coming true when the owner (with a little help from César) dies unexpectedly. But then Jean de Florette, an outsider who inherits the farm, arrives with the intention of settling down and cultivating the land; César and his nephew Ugolin secretly decide to stop up the spring so his plans will fail.
The good-hearted Jean, too naive to imagine that anyone would sabotage him, struggles fruitlessly to make his garden bloom. His continual failure erodes his spirit, setting the stage for a tragedy with consequences for all.
"Manon of the Spring": In this sequel to 1986's "Jean de Florette", Manon (the daughter of "Jean de Florette's" protagonist), has grown up to become a beautiful woman, ready to exact revenge on the men responsible for her father's death. Her actions bring about unforeseen consequences for many...
