Manon des sources

Claude Berri Frankrijk, 1986

Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film Manon of the Spring

Poetic, endearing, heartbreaking. the second part of Jean de Florette's tragedy deals with the consequences of the greed and hypocresy shown among the villagers in the first part and how it affects their lives. Some surprising things come up as well. I never thought that not only the characters, but myself as well, would all be changing our indignation and contempt for forgiveness.
