2016/17 Season

THE WELL-DIGGER'S DAUGHTER

France 2011 (Uncert)
107 minutes

Directed by Daniel Auteuil

Ipswich Film Theatre - 3 October 2016 - 7.30pm

Actor-director Auteuil continues his love affair with Pagnol with this remake of the author’s self-directed 1940 version. The story takes place in characteristically rustic Provence and concerns a widower’s need to find a home for his unmarried daughter’s baby, when her suitors go off to war.

AUDIENCE COMMENTS: Magnificent performance from Daniel Auteuil; One of the best films at IFT for some time; Very well wrought. Even the subtitles were better than they often are; First half very good – second half romantic melodrama – typical Pagnol; Auteuil took a very moving and sweet story and made it very appealing. However the characterisation of the majority of the female roles was weak. An excellent Félipe and Monsieur Mazel.
