Less a sequel than a seamless continuation of its predecessor, Jean
de Florette, Manon of the Spring brings with it a more epic scope
as it depicts the growth to womanhood of the daughter (Emmanuelle
Bart) of the doomed farmer of the first film. As she discovers the
truth of what happened to her father as a result of the scheming of
their neighbor (Yves Montand), who took the land for himself, she
vows revenge, realizing that the neighbor's deeds have irrevocably
shaped the course of her life. Her moves toward avenging her
father's demise provide an ironic twist to this harsh and
thought-provoking saga, and French director Claude Berri perfectly
illustrates the lasting consequences of deceit, greed, and revenge.
Manon of the Spring is a very special foreign film choice, destined
to be revered for years to come. --Robert Lane
