The port of Marseille, in the twenties. Marius, the son of César, the owner of the Marine bar, is torn between his love for Fanny, the little shellfish merchant, and his desire to go to sea, to travel the world…
When Marcel Pagnol, in 1929, had Marius performed on a Parisian stage, he probably did not suspect that his characters would become as famous as Harpagon or Monsieur Jourdain.
Two years later, Pagnol and Alexander Korda made a film of it. Raimu, Charpin, Orane Demazis and Pierre Fresnay reprised their roles, and film immortalized them. They will go around the world….
If you can no longer cheat with your friends, it is no longer worth playing cards.Marius
