Marcel Pagnol – Jofroi AKA Ways of Love (1933)
Jofroi sells his orchard to Alphonse. Alphonse wants to use the land for crops, so he starts to cut down the trees. Jofroi is furious: how can someone cut down those trees? He threatens to commit suicide so that the small town will blame Alphonse and Alphonse’s life will be miserable. Alphonse, the curate, the teacher, and some of the townsfolk spend the rest of the movie trying to keep Jofroi from committing suicide… This is not complicated… the movie is not about the plot; it is all about the characters and the dialogue.

Are there English subtitles for this film? From this tweet (https://twitter.com/middlemanchette/status/1622020319031476225) it seems that there are. If you can find them I would love it!
Thank you very much as always!
