Fanny ★★★★ 1932

Second part of Marcel Pagnol's trilogy depicting the lives of the people of Provence, France. The poignant tale of Fanny, a young woman who marries an older man when Marius, her young lover, leaves her pregnant when he goes to sea. Remade several times but the original holds its own very well. “Marius” was first in the trilogy; “Cesar” was third. 128m/B VHS, DVD .
