Maybe I've suffered a HUGE lapse in concentration, but the last time I watched JDF and MDS Ricky Tomlinson was not in them...though he would be an inspired choice to play Le Papet if he spoke French and Yves Montand wasn't available.

Ricky Tomlinson is a god amongst men. His portrayal as bumbling private eye Eddie in Nice Guy Eddie is brilliant.

I LOVE Jean de Florette. As a matter of fact, it was the film that introduced me to French cinema, and(I think) to world cinema as a whole.
