The Gallic version of peak Merchant Ivory: it really seems like the thing that it is can't help but be awful, and instead it's really great.

Manon of the Spring loses much of Jean de Florette's intensity ... [but] as a bookend set, these two pictures shouldn't be missed.

Berri is unable to overcome the inherent feebleness of the Manon character, here played ineffectually by the lovely and talented Emmanuelle Beart.

The two films make an elegant, satisfying film that lasts for four hours and possess an ending worthy of every minute leading up to it.

Auteil's Ugolin is so well drawn, it's a shame to see the role lost.

Though appealing in its wispy way, Manon is only a continental soap opera.

An admirable follow-up that completes the saga that Claude Berri started with such aplomb.
