The tale resumes a decade later, focusing on Jean de Florette’s beautiful daughter, Manon (Emmanuelle Béart), a shepherdess with whom Ugolin (Daniel Auteuil) falls hopelessly in love but fails to win. When Manon eavesdrops on hunters and learns the truth about the Soubeyrans and their plot against her father, she blocks the water supply to the village at its source in a cave only she knows about. Pandemonium ensues as Manon’s scheme exacts revenge. Though deeply tragic, the story unfolds with charm, wit, and high spirits. Montand and Auteuil are superb in their roles as conniving villains who pay a terrible price, and Béart is magnificent as Manon.
