Déjà vu?

Just released: this poster image for French actor Daniel Auteuil's first excursion into directing, an adaptation of Marcel Pagnol's The Well-Maker's Daughter, starring the fast-rising Franco-Spanish actress Astrid Bergès-Frisbey (Auteuil himself, you may recall, broke through internationally as the shifty peasant Ugolin in the hit film of Pagnol's Jean de Florette). The new film is set to open in France at the end of April.

If the new image looks strangely familiar, just scroll down this blog to compare it with the iconic still from My Mother's Castle, yet another Pagnol adaptation from 1990. A case of déjà vu -or to put it another way - plus ça change.....   Click here to read more about Daniel Auteuil and The Well-Maker's Daughter.
