The Stuffed Barbarian/ Kitömött barbár

In Claude Berri’s film Jean de Florette, based on a novel by Marcel Pagnol, a city-dweller inherits a plot of land in fabulous Provence. Jean, played by Gérard Dépardieu, moves there with his wife and daughter, and makes enthusiastic plans to grow vegetables and breed rabbits. However, as his neighbours secretly block the freshwater spring, Jean’s efforts to create a paradise are doomed to failure. He goes bankrupt, then dies in an accident.
