Jean de Florette: "Yves Montand and Gérard Depardieu star in this timeless tale of greed, survival and fate which four British Academy Awards including Best Film Set amidst the rugged hills of Provence, this epic saga follows the heroic efforts of Jean Cadoret (Depardieu), who inherits a farm from his mother, Florette, and leaves his city job behind, hoping to create a "new Eden" with his wife and daughter. But, unbeknownst to Jean, his greedy neighbor, César Soubeyran (Montand) is plotting to steal the land out from under him with a wicked scheme that drives Jean to the brink of madness."
Manon of the spring: "Starring Daniel Auteuil, Yves Montand and Emmanuelle Béart, who, like "a young Bardot or Deneuve, gives startling performance' (The Hollywood Reporter), this lush sequel to Jean de Florette is "a brilliantly realized achievement" (Boxoffice). Ten years after her father's death, Manon (Béart) has no idea that her neighbor César Soubeyran (Montand) cheated her out of her father's land. But when Manon discovers that Soubeyran was directly responsible for her father's death, she goes after him with a vengeance in this "epic [and] rousing tale of retribution" (Newsweek).
The joint winners of eight French Cesar awards, Jean de Florette and Manon of the Spring were released to the U.S. in tandem in 1987.
