Co-adapted by director Claude Berri from a novel by Marcel Pagnol, this hugely successful French historical drama concerns a fateful battle of wits over a valuable natural spring in a remote village in Provence. A disreputable old man and his nephew plot to trick their neighbour, a newcomer from the city, out of his newly inherited property. They use every available trick in an attempt to force him from his land, but the novice farmer stands firm.
