Jean de Florette Reviews:

Certainly one of the greatest examples of French cinema. A searing strong storyline of greed, and its effects. All the actors are excellent, Yves Montand is especially heartbreaking. This film and its sequel are two of the greatest movies of the 1980's. By the method it's about time they were re-released on DVD i wish to add them to my collection.I do not understand why such movies are released and the go out of print these are necessary unbelievable movies that deserve fresh audiences, and a fresh generation of admirers. If it is a business decision that they don't make as much revenue as most of the garbage that comes out of Hollywood, they could be ashamed of themselves.


This movie captures other world, and makes you a part of it. The acting is superb, the scenery breathtaking, and a large amount of skill and effort has gone into evoking the heat of summer and the features of village life in a harsh, pre-industrial world. If you cannot stand watching a movie in a foreign language, or you only watch movies with unique results and non-stop action,then you may search something to object to in this one, but otherwise it is perfection. The storyline is heart-wrenching, all the characters (both nice and bad) demand sympathy, and the storyline is both credible, and beautifully told. That is the real quality of this movie - it says a simple, gripping storyline in a method that grips any viewer with a heart from begin to finish.


... and never really come close.How can one be the witness to this much acting, such a powerful story about greed (which makes us appreciate human qualities - all the more), and not be touched/moved by this ?Combined with part II (which really is not optional - considering it's dramatic revelation) - it makes for superbe movie-going experience that is barely 1 notch short of GodFather quality, as far as drama goes. Hero development is excellent, cute much all of it is plausible, nothing really grates, except to see a nice boy suffer.Jean is good, an erudite - but he cannot understand nor smell a conspiracy - as this makes no true sense to someone with his principles. And when is all told and done - what matters most once you are heading to the pearly gates (should you be so lucky) the amount of wealth you've amassed or how you lived ? How do you hope to be remembered ?As cunning and sly as Soubeyrand is - I guess he never figured it out....A cruel, stunning classic, with impeccable french nuances. A must-see.J.M.
