“Marius”, “Fanny” and “César”
The Old Port of Marseille, César’s Bar de la Marine, sunshine and card games… Plunge into Marcel Pagnol’s famous trilogy “Marius”, “Fanny” and “César”, and embark on a voyage to Marseille in the 1920s. The prodigal son of Aubagne, Pagnol’s storytelling skills have no match. Welcome to a world of Made in Marseille verbal jousting and such classic scenes as the picon-lemon-curaçao cocktail mixing lesson:
“-And now you have four thirds.
-Exactly. I hope you got it this time. (He drinks a gulp of the mixture).
-There are only three thirds in a glass.
-But it depends on the size of the third, you idiot!”
