Jean de Florette (1986) 720p BluRay DD5.1 x264-CtrlHD

Posted on March 1, 2015

Jean de Florette / Jean Florette (1986)


The first of two parts of the classic Marcel Pagnol story set in southeast France in the mid 1920s. In a small provencal village, where water is scarce and the earth dry, only one piece of property possesses an underground spring to irrigate the soil–and the wily, greedy Cèsar (Yves Montand) will do anything to get hold of it. His dreams seem on the verge of coming true when the owner (with a little help from Cèsar) dies unexpectedly. But then Jean Cadoret (Gerard Depardieu), an outsider who inherits the farm, arrives with the intention of settling down and cultivating the land with his good-hearted wife Aimee (played by Depardieu's real wife, Elisabeth Depardieu) and young daughter Manon (Ernestine Mazurowna). Jean, a hunchback and sensitive dreamer, glories in his new life while Cèsar and his nephew Ugolin (Daniel Auteuil) secretly decide to stop up the spring so his plans will fail. The good-hearted Jean, too naive to imagine that anyone would sabotage him, struggles fruitlessly to make his garden bloom. His continual failure erodes his spirit, setting the stage for a tragedy with consequences for all.

Starring: Yves Montand, Gérard Depardieu, Daniel Auteuil, Elisabeth Depardieu, Margarita Lozano

NOTES………: This USA source has the highest bitrate (and 5.1 audio) with almost the same colors/brightness as the French BD, whereas the Dutch BD is brightened and was cleaned up around the edges of the image, which resulted in a little loss of details. Also, there was scene segment with a different framing at the beginning of the movie. I made a hybrid fix by overlaying the bottom two pixels from the dutch source, they contained less artefacts, then fixed the sides dirty pixels with overlay and BalanceBorders.
