I heard of Erice's film under the title The South, so that might explain the mix up. Either way I haven't seen either version, although it has been on my to watch list for several years now (along with several thousand other movies).
and yes years and directors would help, don't have to get all fancy with countries, but I'll leave you to your own discretion.
btw Where the hell did you get to see Le Pont du Nord? They didn't even show that at the Rivette retro here in Chicago.
