For lovers of classical French cinema, and I am one, this earthy throwback is a whiff of lavender borne by the bracing winds of the mistral.
Marcel Pagnol's warm-hearted tales of peasant life defined the international image of French cinema before the war.
The Welldigger's Daughter is just about the most delightful French comedy-drama that has come this way since the memorable The Baker's Wife.
This is enjoyable fluff and the perfect antidote to long winter nights.
You will need a slightly sweet tooth for this movie, as the ending is a little saccharine - but it is well made and well acted throughout.
