Shut Up and Watch This

#48: Jean de Florette (1986)

March 20, 2020

We suddenly have a lot of time on our hands, so why not watch a few epic French films? Dave’s pick this week is Claude Berri’s JEAN DE FLORETTE, a tale of rural betrayal, drought, and broken dreams set in the beautiful Provençal region of France. Ashley is taken with what at first seems to be a simple story about a man who wants to grow flowers, but quickly takes on the weight of a Greek or Shakespearian tragedy. A man plans, and God (and farmers) laugh.
