THE WELL-DIGGER’S DAUGHTER (Theatrical Release France 2011)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.1|5.0 Starsììì

The Well-Digger’s Daughter
is an exceptionally sweet French foreign film depicting one family’s ‘handling’ of a pregnant daughter who has no husband. It’s a charming and engaging film, quite well-managed, and definitely worth watching. Don’t miss it. The ending is worth the wait and defines the best in humans.
