Box set containing four classic movies from acclaimed French director Claude Berri. 'Jean De Florette' (1986) is set in Provence in the 1930s where city-bred hunchback Jean (Gerard Depardieu) brings his family to his mother's old farm with plans for an idyllic life on the land. However, his scheming neighbours, Le Papet (Yves Montand) and Ugoli (Daniel Auteil), covet his farm's little-known water source, and the resulting feud escalates towards tragedy. 'Manon Des Sources' (1986) is the sequel to 'Jean De Florette' and begins ten years after Jean's death, with his beautiful daughter Manon (Emmanuelle Beart) still haunting the hills overlooking the land stolen from her father by Le Papet (Yves Montand) and the simple-minded Ugolin (Daniel Auteuil). When Manon learns the truth behind her father's death she sets out to wreak her revenge, depriving the entire community of their water supply just as they deprived Jean. In 'Lucie Aubrac' (1997), in World War Two occupied France, Lucie Samuel (Carole Bouquet) has to pose as her own husband Raymond's (Daniel Auteuil) mistress in order to be allowed to visit him in prison after he is arrested at a Resistance meeting. Using her underground pseudonym of Aubrac, Lucie sets about organising her fellow Resistance members to rescue Raymond, risking all of their lives in the process. Finally, 'Germinal' (1993) is set in the coal mines of Northern France during the Second Napoleonic Empire and depicts the events leading up to a disastrous and drawn out strike with Etienne Lantier (Renaud), the unemployed itinerant who is drawn into the heat and toil of the mines.

This set of four DVD's is excellent value as, at time of writing this review, it was cheaper to buy these four movies as a set than it was to buy Germinal on it's own.

Well worth the watch, we'll worth the money! Very economical way of owning this filmakers output. Jean de Florette and Manon des Sources always a very good watch.

Germinal turned out to be a brilliant film as I had expected..Jean de Florett and Manon de Source were a bonus as I already had some poor cassetes of them - they are also classics.

A great collection of films from a French Master of film making. Personally Germinal is my least favorite, but the other 3 make up for it when the price is right
