Cast: Raimu, Pierre Fresnay, Orane Demazis Fanny, left alone and pregnant with Marius’ child, agrees to marry the sailmaker Panisse (Charpin). When Marius returns from his travels, he is upset that Fanny has not waited for him, and Marius’ father César decides to talk sense to his son. Filled with emotional, life-affirming moments, this second part of Marcel Pagnol’s trilogy was a particular influence on Jacques Demy’s The Umbrellas of Cherbourg.
