In the first part of screenwriter Marcel Pagnol’s epic love story, Marius (Pierre Fresnay, Grand Illusion), a handsome young barman working at his father’s waterfront bar in the busy port city of Marseille, and Fanny (Orane Demazis), the spirited girl who sells shellfish in front of the bar, fall in love. They seem destined to be together forever, but Marius cannot overcome his wanderlust, a deep yearning to see the world. His father, César (revered French icon Raimu, The Baker’s Wife), is oblivious to the crisis, as is Honoré Panisse (Fernand Charpin), the aging prosperous widower who is also vying for Fanny’s hand—until Fanny, knowing Marius’s happiness lies in the balance, changes their lives forever. The beloved Marseille trilogy (Marius, Fanny, César), directed by three different filmmakers but governed by Pagnol’s distinctive voice and prescient filmmaking vision, is an unprecedented marriage of cinematic and theatrical techniques that is saturated in piquant Provençal flavor and brimming with some of early cinema’s greatest performances. Glorious 4K digital restoration. (Fully subtitled)
