Set along Marseilles’ bustling Old Port in the 1920s, part one of this double bill follows the amorous travails of would-be sailor Marius who, when he’s not working at the café of his straight-talking dad, César, has his eyes on 18-year-old Fanny. When Fanny falls pregnant with Marius’ child, his desire for a life at sea overrides his desire for family life.

Veteran French actor Daniel Auteuil continues his love affair with acclaimed playwright’s Pagnol’s work (Jean de Florette, Manon des Sources). See this and Fanny for £12.00.
