Audience Member The second installment in the Marseilles Trilogy that takes you further into the ever complicated relationship between Marius & Fanny. Marius went with his desire for the sea & left Fanny alone & pregnant. The film chronicles her struggle & her immediate family & Marius'. Yet again the dialogue just glistens in this film & the characters (even side ones) are genuinely like able. You really sympathize for Fanny in this film & her struggle to do what is right, this film has terrific twist in the final chapter. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member The second film in Allegret and Pagnol's trilogy, this film is just as utterly charming and emotional as the first. Resuming where the first one ended, Fanny must deal with the consequences of her romance with Marius, now off at sea. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member have to say...really not enjoying the trilogy very much. stylistically, this is way less jean vigo or jean renoir than i would have liked. the acting is actually pretty top notch with a particular strong comedic perfoamcen from raimu. oh well, bring on cesar Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Another waste of money!! AGAIN...The title is very misleading!?! >:-( Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member par égocentrisme .... Non, non en vrai c'est bien en plus Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Bon film français comme on n'en fait plus.
