The Well-Digger's Daughter


“The Well-Digger's Daughter is fine French filmmaking
Daniel Auteuil's adaptation of the Marcel Pagnol novel is old-school in the most pleasing of ways.”  
– Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times

About love, family and the seductive beauty of the provençal countryside.”  
– Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

“A perfectly packaged kickoff to actor-turned-director Daniel Auteuil's reboot of four works by Marcel Pagnol, The Well-Digger's Daughter is a polished, finely acted tale of love and class in the south of France. Auteuil does a terrific job in channeling Amoretti's mix of straight-talking humor, workers' pride and fatherly love.”  
– Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
