French (English subtitles)
This is the second film in the ‘Marseille trilogy’ from director Daniel Auteuil, a remake of a classic film trilogy from the 1930s and adapted from a series of French plays by Marcel Pagnol. In this film, we see waitress Fanny fall in love with Marius who then deserts her for a once-in-a-lifetime job opportunity. Soon after, she discovers that she’s pregnant and must act quickly in deciding what to do next. Consulting with Marius’ parents, Fanny reluctantly accepts the advances of a much older and wealthier man in order to avoid the scorn of the community, but is soon torn when an old flame turns up declaring his love.
Love, pride and class collide in this poignant and polished rural melodrama that opens in pre-Second World War France.
