New 4K Digital Restoration! Marcel Pagnol's Marseille Trilogy, Part 1
France | 1931 | Alexander Korda
The first part of the celebrated and beloved “Marseille Trilogy,” written by the great Marcel Pagnol, introduces the saga’s three main characters: waterfront café owner César (Raimu); his dreamy son Marius (Pierre Fresnay), who yearns to go to sea; and local girl Fanny (Orane Demazis), who vies with the sea for Marius’ affection. This wonderfully acted, character-driven saga overflows with warmth, humor, and heart; it’s one of the most enjoyable and involving screen sagas ever made. Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 127 min.
The trilogy continues over the next two weekends.
