A film by Marcel Pagnol (1940)


This season will explore the films made on the eve of the Second World War… An interesting mix of escapism and propaganda, where well-intentioned populism is never very far from fascism…

LA FILLE DU PUISATIER | 1940 | 142 min |

The Well-Digger’s Daughter (French: La Fille du puisatier) is a 1940 French romantic comedy drama film directed by Marcel Pagnol.


Patricia, a peasant girl, becomes pregnant by Jacques, a military pilot from a local town family. He serves in World War II, while his family refuses to support the child and her father expels her from their home. Patricia stays with her aunt and gives birth to a boy. Jacques is reported killed in the war, and both families wish to meet his son, their new grandchild. Jacques is not dead, however; he returns and Patricia agrees to marry him
