He receives thirty million francs in compensation but dies soon after. Hortense, his only daughter, inherits the money but the trouble is that Félix has hidden the loot somewhere and it is nowhere to be found. All of Hortense’s next of kin suddenly take an interest in the “poor orphan” and those greedy ones – with the exception of kind-hearted uncle Simon – put pressure on the girl, and try – through wile, threat and even murder, to inveigle her inheritance. But however young and frail Hortense is, she is nobody’s fool.
Plot: The heroine in L’Eau Vive is the unwilling heir to a fortune. Young Hortense (Pascale Audret) has always known that her family was greedy, but until she inherits her father’s hidden millions she has no idea how loathsome her relatives could be. Surrounded on all sides by grubby, outstretched hands, Hortense takes some comfort in the fact that her legacy is still missing. When the money is finally recovered, our heroine does the “right thing” with her windfall, leaving her mercenary family empty-handed. Throughout the film, Hortense’s dilemma is likened to a government dam project not far from her home; as the bridge grows in size, so too does Hortense’s resolve to rise above the nastiness all around her.

Ma Petite Est Comme L’ Eau…..
Today,French people mainly remember Guy Béart’s (Emmanuelle’s father) eponymous ballad which was a big hit circa 1959.Few people still know that it’s the song from a movie (I don’t even remember if you hear the sung version in the movie anyway).
Based on a Jean Giono novel ,a pacifist writer from Provence,it’s not as gripping as the made-for-TV “the deserter” .The screenplay is rather derivative : the orphan girl versus greedy relatives.Pascale Audret ,who was Hughes Aufray’s sister -He was a famous French singer , the first to cover Dylan’s songs there-has charm and talent going for her and there are the lovely landscapes and and even ecological concern.
