Added DiffLines:

* LaserGuidedKarma: The villagers believe their water drying up is a divine punishment for their complicity by inaction in Jean's death. It's actually due to Manon stopping up the source. Once they confess their guilt and denounce César and Ugolin, she unblocks it but lets them believe it's due to divine intervention.

Added DiffLines:

* {{French Jerk}}: The old man Cesar accidentally kills early in Jean de Florette (after he insulted Cesar's family honor). He seems to be a mix of a stereotypical American Redneck (complete with wanting to be buried with his gun) and a stereotypical French Jerk (of the "I fart in your general direction" type).

* 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.

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