Jean de Florette & Manon of the Spring French with English subtitles

Superb movies on every level: acting (the cream of French actors), storyline, cinematography (Provence at its best), even the music is outstanding. They are really two halves of one film - here they are together on DVD. (Manon of the Spring is called Manon des Sources in the French original). 

La Gloire de mon Pere & Le Chateau de ma Mere French with English subtitles
English titles: My Father's Glory & My Mother's Castle. Two magical, moving films based on the memoirs of the legendary Provencal writer and director Marcel Pagnol. Beautiful and very moving, these films are heavily imbued with the atmosphere of summers in Provence and the wonder of growing up.
  Movies shot in the Luberon region of Provence 
 

The Horseman on the Roof
A historical epic with heaving bosoms, thundering horses, spicy swordfights, and glorious cinematography, including the rooftops of Curcuron.
 

Swimming Pool
Charlotte Rampling in a sometimes bizarre tale of a writer coming to a house in the Luberon to write. The house has a big swimming pool, hence the title. Everything is not as it seems...
 

Mr Bean's Holiday
Yes, if you look carefully you can glimpse various Luberon locations like Oppede le vieux and Cavaillon, as well as Cannes and Paris.
