Manon of the Spring
Marcel Pagnol's great story from 30s Provence continues here. Ten years have passed since Jean de Florette died. Ugolin and Papet, who caused his death, are gluttonous in wealth. And Jean's daughter, Manon, has grown up and transformed into a ravishing beauty who lives with her goats in the mountains. A single glance from a man is enough for him to become possessed, which happens to Ugolin when he sees her bathing naked in a spring. But Manon reveals his and Papet's crime and stages a diabolical revenge that will destroy not only them - but the whole society. At the same time, the secret of who Jean de Florette really was is also revealed. A secret that will shock everyone, not least Manon herself...
