Based on the classic novel by Marcel Pagnol, Jean de Florette and Manon des Sources stand as masterpieces of modern French cinema, timeless tales of passion, greed and revenge abounding with beautiful imagery and brilliant performances from the greatest French actors of their generation. Presented here in one special DVD collection, these universally acclaimed films follow the travails of Jean de Florette and his beautiful daughter Manon as they play out a war of wills in the French countryside. JEAN DE FLORETTE City-dweller Jean de Florette (Gerard Depardieu - Cyrano De Bergerac) moves his family to Provence in the 1920s to forge a new life as a farmer, but his neighbourhood rival Le Papet (Yves Montand - Wages Of Fear) conspires with his simple-minded nephew Ugolin (Daniel Auteuil - Queen Margot) to block the spring that will ensure his survival. MANON DES SOURCES Emmanuelle Beart (Mission Impossible), in one of her most mesmerising roles, lends her wild, innocent beauty to the role of Manon, who upon learning the tragic truth behind her father's demise, plots revenge on the dim-witted Ugolin and the scheming Le Papet. Drenched in the gorgeous clarity of Provencal light, an epic tale of love, passion, revenge and regret unfolds with the power of a Greek or Shakespearean tragedy.
