Jean de Florette & Manon of the Spring

These movies are why I don’t know French. Instead of teaching me Fran-sez, a public school system employee made me watch these two movies, which took up at least two weeks of class time. Here’s what I learned:

1. Neighbors suck
2. Lives are really long
3. Don’t be a French farmer

But, they magically kept me awake, which means they must have been somewhat good, right?

 

This is what 51% of the movie looks like.
