This production resuscitates Gounod s original composition, largely forgotten. A triumph for Minkowski, conducting at the Opera national de Paris, it attracted more than 1 million viewers when broadcast on TV! No competition on DVD or Bluray At last, Mireille one of the most original works of the 19th century has found its rightful place at the Palais Garnier. In 1854, a young Provençal poet, Fredéric Mistral, founded a literary association with a few other people, the aim of which was to uphold and illustrate its language and culture. They called this school Félibrige, a word of mysterious origin - a blend of joy, books and freedom. In 1859, he took things one step further and gave Félibrige its battle flag and masterpiece, Miréio, a vast epic love poem. As it happened, Gounod, whose Faust was created that year, read Mireille shortly after publication and was full of enthusiasm and went to Saint-Rémy de Provence to seek out this passionate music. Due to its singularity and density, the work has had a difficult career and was revised and altered several times. In 1939, Guy Ferrant and Henri Busser, disciples of Gounod, restored the original and Mireille was finally restored from the fine midsummer's morning and its dancing to the gripping scene in the desert-like Crau region.

Mer et montagne ont façonné le caractère provençal : indépendant et fier, mais simple, et ouvert à l’étranger. D’où ces marins exposés aux risques de la mer, et ces bergers solitaires que terrifient des monstres aussi féroces que la Tarasque. Mais aussi, que de bons saints pour vous sauver des enchantements. Et quel humour, véritable sagesse, pour vous garder des coûts du sort, des pièges du diable ou de la cruauté des hommes!.

Genre : Documentaire

Au printemps 1954, Pablo Picasso, qui séjourne dans le village provençal de Vallauris, demande à Sylvette David, sa jeune voisine de 19 ans, de devenir son modèle. En quelques semaines, il fera plus de cinquante portraits de la jeune femme à la haute queue de cheval blonde et à la frange en désordre – dans une étonnante diversité de styles, du réalisme au cubisme. Une collaboration qui aida le peintre à surmonter sa récente rupture avec l’artiste Françoise Gilot, partie vivre à Paris avec leurs deux enfants. À l’occasion de l’exposition exceptionnelle organisée à Brême autour de cette série de portraits, ce documentaire intimiste part à la rencontre de Sylvette David, qui fut l’un des témoins privilégiés du travail de cet artiste phare du XXe siècle.

Alphonse Daudet's short stories were tailor made for a Provençal director such as Pagnol. If you go to Provence, you can visit the windmill where Daudet was supposed to write his "letters." Actually, he never lived in this place, but in the castle of some of his friends near the legendary mill. However, it's true that most of the stories which were included in "Lettres de Mon Moulin" are true stories. Daudet was told about Maitre Cornille, Mr. Seguin's goat and others by peasants and shepherds he met in his walks across the hills.
