This sun-soaked portrait of life in 1940s rural France was the favourite film of the Borderlines Film Festival audience. Auteuil is at his best as the horny-handed man of the soil Pascal Amoretti, a well-digger with six daughters, determined to raise them as good, honest Catholics. When his favourite, the stunningly beautiful Patricia becomes pregnant Pascal faces some hard choices about how best to help her. Its glorious Provencal setting, polished acting, and a sweeping score give this a romantic and authentic charm.
