Storyline

1915. Life at the Paridier farm has changed dramatically since the men of the family (Constant, Georges and Clovis) left home to go and fight on the front line. Hortense Sandrail, Henri and Constant's mother and Clovis' mother-in-law, has taken over courageously but, although helped by her daughter Solange, she finds it hard to get by with all the workload. When harvest time comes, she makes up her mind to hire a farmhand but she is too late and no man is available. The mayor then recommends her an orphan named Francine Riant, who could do. Hortense agrees and the choice soon appears a blessing, as the girl proves perfect: well-mannered and respectful, she is also a hard worker who does not balk at any task. Hortense, Solange and her form an effective trio, who make the most of the situation. One day, Georges comes back to the farm on leave and he falls in love with Francine. Written by Guy Bellinger

Almost in a class by itself.
15 July 2018 | by See all my reviews

Few tho they are, the previous user reviews do well at putting this superb film in context--even while underrating it. I thought JEAN DE FLORETTE and MANON OF THE SPRING were simply the best films made in the 80s. This film, with its related French provincial peasant saga, is very nearly as good. FRANTZ and A VERY LONG ENGAGEMENT are very distinguished recent comparables. Enjoy!
