About The Well Digger's Daughter

Daniel Auteuil directs and stars in this remake of Marcel Pagnol's classic. Pretty, innocent eighteen-year-old Patricia (Astrid Bergès-Frisbey ) lives happily in the bosom of her loving family in the idyllic countryside of pre-World War I France with her six sisters and widowed father Pascal (Auteuil). One day, as she walks through the fields to bring Pascal his lunch, she meets Jacques (Nicolas Duvauchelle), a handsome young pilot. They soon become a couple, but tragedy strikes when Jacques enlists to fight in the coming war. Patricia turns to her father when she finds out that she is pregnant, but he is stunned that this could have happened to his sweet little princess and banishes her from the family. It is only through the compassion offered by his friend Felipe (Kad Merad) that Pascal might come to see the error of his ways.
