France 1936 141 mins. In French

The culminating episode, which can be fully appreciated without seeing the first two parts, continues the story 20 years later. Fanny is married to Panisse, who is about to die, Marius lives in the shadow of a misspent life, and Fanny’s son Césariot returns not yet knowing who his real father is. The one who knows all and provides the film with its richest illuminations is César (Raimu), patriarch of Pagnol’s Provence gallery of all-too-human characters. In French with English subtitles.
