Part of the program

In the second part of the Jean de Florette saga, karma and destiny flow through the countryside. Depardieu’s now-grown daughter Emmanuelle Béart lives in harmony with the land as a shepherdess. Lonely Daniel Auteuil struggles to reconcile his yearning for her with guilt over his past betrayals of her father orchestrated by village elder Yves Montand. Berri explores all the drama of human weakness and natural splendor, leading to devastating epiphanies for the characters.
