Kino Lorber is proud to present the U.S. theatrical release of THE WELL-DIGGER’S DAUGHTER (La Fille du Puisatier), opening in Minneapolis at Landmark’s Lagoon Cinema on Friday, August 17 until Thursday, August 23. This exquisite adaptation of Marcel Pagnol's classic tale is directed by Daniel Auteuil, who starred in Claude Berri’s adaptations of Marcel Pagnol’s JEAN DE FLORETTE and MANON OF THE SPRING.
The hardworking well-digger Pascal Amoretti (Daniel Auteuil) is a widower raising six daughters in rural France at the start of World War I. Holding a special place in his heart is his eldest daughter, Patricia (Astrid Bergès-Frisbey), who returns home from school in Paris to help care for her sisters. Patricia soon catches the eye of Jacques Mazel (Nicolas Duvauchelle), a dashing fighter pilot and son of a wealthy merchant. Their attraction quickly blossoms into something more and when Jacques is suddenly called to war, Patricia is left alone to face the consequences of their passion. Upon learning that he is about to become a grandfather, Pascal is torn between defending the family honor and his love for his daughter. Beautifully shot in the Provence countryside, THE WELL-DIGGER’S DAUGHTER captures all the warmth and humanist spirit of Marcel Pagnol's classic. (A Kino Lorber Release/107 min./Not Rated/In French with English Subtitles)
