But his proud, cocky neighbouring rival Le Papet (Yves Montand, Wages Of Fear, Manon Des Sources) schemes with his simple-minded nephew Ugolin (Daniel Auteuil, Queen Margot, Manon Des Sources) to acquire some nearby land ensuring the novice owner never discovers an all-important natural spring on the property.Exploring the formidable rural landscape, Jean de Florette captures one family's noble struggle against the forces of nature and the treachery of man.
