If Only Real Life Were Like This,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Well-Digger's Daughter [DVD] (DVD)
An unashamedly happy story (after a harsher middle) a tale of rural folk, a beautiful daughter, the wayward son of the local shop-owner, war, and the birth of a child. If Jean de Florette tugged at the heartstrings this Pagnol tale opts for happier climes from its excellent cast, and the local countryside which should get star billing. If Thomas Hardy had written this it would have been a lot grimmer, but thankfully he was busy elsewhere.
