Les lettres de mon moulin / Letters from My Windmill (1954) DVD9 + DVD5
Alphonse Daudet purchases a windmill in Pamperigouste, an attractive region of rural France, to write a series of short stories. There are four stories that Marcel Pagnol transformed into films: "The Elixir of the Reverend Father Gaucher", "The Secret of Master Cornille", "The Three Low Masses", "The Cure of Cucugnan".
In "The Three Low Masses", a priest with a love of food tries to get his clerical duties out of the way as fast as possible so that he can partake of his Christmas feast. In "The Elixir of Father Gaucher", a monk manages to rescue his brothers from poverty by distilling and selling a powerful elixir, but ends up succumbing to its charms himself. In "The Secret of Master Cornille", an ageing miller tries to keep up the illusion that his windmill enables him to earn a living, in spite of the fact that all the villagers make use of the more efficient steam-driven flour mills.
