A wonderful story in a DVD at a great price when purchased used.
It was pleasing to find Manon des Sources on ebay for a fraction of the retail price. Being the second and final part of the film based on Marcel Pagnol's novel L'Eau des Collines, it takes you through several twists to its climax via an emotional journey tinged with moments of passion and tragedy. I had previously watched the first part 'Jean de Florette', which tells the story of how Jean, played by Gerard Depardieu, moved with his family to a house in the dry hills of Southern France after inheriting land from his mother, Florette. Convinced by the presence of a water spring on his land, Jean sets out to find it in his dream of making a living by growing crops and rearing livestock. Jean's dream is hampered by the crooked Soubeyrain family, esp. the younger Ugolin (Daniel Auteuil) who befriends him while denying the viability of any spring should it exist - in an effort to get him to sell the land for their own ends. As the story unfolds, Jean's pretty young daughter, Manon, observes the relationship between him and Ugolin but shares none of her fathers trust in him, which seems justified when she witnesses the tragic event at the end of part one. Manon's distrust comes into its own in part 2 as an important element of the film. It is possible to enjoy Manon des Sources without watching 'Jean de Florette' first as much of it is revealed during the course of the second part - but a five minute recap of its summary would help before watching.

Une histoire magnifique que nous connaissons tous, sur fond de paysage provençal. Le film rend bien le chef d'oeuvre de Marcel Pagnol. A voir !

A film for just about everyone.
If you like France you'll love this film. If you like the French language you'll love this film. If you like a love story you'll love this film. If you like intrigue you'll love this film. Wonderful characters, great story and every emotion contained within. A definite must-see, but watch "Jean de Florette" first to get the most from your viewing experience. This is known as "Jean de Florettte" part 2. If you want to impress a lady give it a go!

Manon des Sources
It's the second part of a classic film called Jean de Florette. It's a wonderful characterful French film that has more depth and character description than almost any film you're likely to but today. The price makes it too cheap to resist, cheaper than hiring it and it's the sort of film you'd want to see again. Mike Newman
