Marius & Fanny
Marius is the first part of Marcel Pagnol's classic trilogy following the loves and losses of a Marseille port community. Actor and director Daniel Auteuil (The Well-Digger's Daughter) has made a sumptuous adaptation that will make you swoon. Marius (Raphaël Personnaz) is the strapping young son of César (Auteuil), a blustery café owner.
Marius has known and adored the pretty fishmonger Fanny (Victoire Bélézy) since they were children, but he is torn between his love for her and his love for the sea. Fanny, meanwhile, is being courted by the kindly old shop-owner Panisse (Jean- Pierre Darroussin), who offers wealth and stability. Marius and Fanny are torn between freedom and responsibility, and every decision they make leads to greater heartbreak. With its brilliant and beautiful performances, Marius is a soaring,
Fanny is the second part of Marcel Pagnol's classic trilogy following the loves and losses of a Marseille port community. Actor and director Daniel Auteuil (The Well-Digger's Daughter) has faithfully and beautifully recreated the grand emotions of this beloved text. Following the events in the first part, Marius, Fanny (Victoire Bélézy) is abandoned and pregnant, and fearful for the future of her unborn child. To secure the baby's future, she agrees to marry the wealthy merchant Panisse (Jean-Pierre Daroussin), who guarantees a comfortable, if loveless, future. As she is adjusting to her new reality, Marius re-appears in her life like a phantom, and all the old, powerful emotions bubble up once again. Fanny is a supremely entertaining melodrama that won't leave a dry eye in the house.
