The Well-Digger's Daughter
La fille du puisatier

Daniel Auteuil, 2011 Color. 105 min.
With Daniel Auteuil, Kad Merad,
Sabine Azéma, Jean-Pierre Darroussin
In French with English subtitles

Actor-turned-director Daniel Auteuil presents a star-studded remake of Marcel Pagnol’s 1940 film as his directorial debut.

Set around WWI, the film follows the oldest and favorite daughter of well-digger Pascal Amoretti (Auteuil), who is courted by the handsome and wealthier young Jacques (Nicolas Duvauchelle), the son of prosperous shopkeepers. Their relationship blossoms quickly, only to end suddenly when Jacques is sent to the front leaving Patricia to deal with the consequences of their brief moment of passion.

"A polished, finely acted tale of love and class in the south of France."—The Hollywood Reporter

Special thanks to Kino Lorber Inc.
The film will open Friday, July 20 at the Lincoln Plaza Cinema and the Quad Cinema.
