Fanny

France 1932. Dir: Marc Allégret. 127 min. DCP

NEW RESTORATION | In the second film of Marcel Pagnol’s great Marseille Trilogy, Fanny, grieving the departure of her beloved Marius, allows herself to be wooed and wed by the middle-aged widower Honoré Panisse (Fernand Charpin), a prosperous sailmaker. Unexpectedly, Marius returns home after a year at sea and seeks to resume his romance with Fanny. Directed, from Pagnol’s script, by the prolific Marc Allégret, who two years later made Zouzou with Josephine Baker. “Savour the finely-drawn character studies, the triumphant acting, the warmth, humanity, and tightly-reined sentimentality of Pagnol’s whole outlook” (Geoff Brown, Time Out). “The performances are a joy to behold and Pagnol’s dialogue displays supreme comic skill. The film’s success allowed him to build his own studio near Marseille” (Bloomsbury Foreign Film Guide).
