* It'sProbablyNothing: Papet and Ugolin fail for this not once but twice: when blocking the source ("it's the rats!") and when unblcking it ("probably a hare that got caught by a hawk")

* YourSonAllAlong: In the first film, the protagonist wants the titular Jean to sell him his land, and plays many tricks on him to pursuade him to do so. It doesn't help that Jean is the son of his childhood sweetheart Florette, who left him and married another man while he was away at war. In the end, he successfully drives Jean to his death and takes the land. In the second film Jean's daughter, Manon, takes revenge for her father's death. It is only at the end of this film that the main character discovers that, contrary to what he thought, Jean was not Florette's son by her husband, but his own son, and that he has unwittingly [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone caused the death of his only child]] and [[HeelRealisation been in conflict with his granddaughter!]]

* {{Tsundere}}: César and Delphine's descriptions of Florette make her sound like a rather complicated example of a Tsundere: by turns, coquettish and cold and never told César that she loved him, though Delphine is firmly of the opinion that she did.

* MeaningfulName: César is named for, well, Caesar. Fitting as he is the patriarch of both the Soubeyran family and Les Bastides Blanches in general.


Added DiffLines:

** Bonus {{Squick}} in the books, as Ugolin is pushing thirty and Manon is ''fifteen''.
