A Year in Provence ()

directed by
featuring John Thaw, Lindsay Duncan, Jean-Pierre Delage, Bernard Spiegal, Jo Doumerg

British retiree John Thaw and his wife Lindsay Duncan spend a Year in Provence in this TV miniseries. Each episode covers a single season of the couple's experiences in their new home in the south of France. Purchasing a 200-year-old farmhouse, Thaw and Duncan must undergo the usual rigors of restorations and adjustment. They also come to understand the fancies and foibles of their new neighbors, many of whom seem to be refugees from a Rene Clair musical. Most pleasurable of all, the couple is permitted to partake of eating and drinking experiences that they'd never dreamed of in their staid previous existence. A Year in Provence is based on two autobiographical novels by former London businessman Peter Mayle. Hal Erickson, Rovi Hide synopsis

This is a delightful rendering of Peter Mayle's very amusing and informative book about life in Provence. The characters are endearing, and the monthly / seasonal adventures are illuminated by an enduring "joie de vivre".
