A film adapted by, directed by and starring Daniel Auteuil.
Similarly to ‘The Well-Digger’s daughter’ which we showed in the last film season, this is a film based on the work of Marcel Pagnol – his renowned ‘Marseilles Trilogy’ – a French national treasure.
Daniel Auteuil is one of the best-known actors in France and made his name in the famous adaptations of Pagnol’s ‘Jean de Florette’ and ‘Manon des Sources’.
Marius lives in the busy port of Marseilles in the 1920s, where his childhood friendship with fishmonger’s daughter Fanny blossoms into love. However, Marius is eager for adventure and yearns to run away to the sea.
Auteuil’s stature as an actor means that he successfully brings the ‘Marseilles Trilogy’ back to life and back to the screen, while remaining largely faithful to the much-loved 1930s film adaptations of this work.
The story will continue with our next screening, ‘Fanny’, which will be shown in January.
With English subtitles and drinks available at the bar for a small fee, come and enjoy a bit of French culture.
