Jean de Florette (1986)

Type :   Production countries :  


The story takes place in Paris, a small village in Provence, France, shortly after the First World War. Ugolin Soubeyran returns early in the morning from his military service, and wakes up his uncle César—known as 'Le Papet' . Ugolin stays only briefly to talk, as he is eager to get to his own place further up in the mountains. Here he throws himself into a project that—at first—he keeps secret from Papet. He eventually reveals that the project consists of growing carnations. Papet is at first skeptical, but he is convinced when the flowers get a high price at the local market. They decide the project is worthy of expansion, and together they go to see the local farmer Pique-Bouffigue, to buy his land. The land in question is apparently "dry", but Papet knows of a source of water, a spring, that can solve that problem. The neighbour does not want to sell, and an altercation breaks out when he insults the Soubeyran family.
