Critic Reviews for Fanny

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

Mr. Auteuil's passion project is sincere but not successful, honorable but not alive.

July 17, 2014 | Full Review…

Fanny has a stagy sensibility, but Auteuil displays flashes of genuine, old-school craft.

July 15, 2014 | Full Review…

Not just cinéma de papa, but cinema de grand-papa.

November 28, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

If there's a way to render Pagnol successfully, at least in a way that would make another adaptation of this work necessary, Auteuil's mixed bag of rigid emotions and flat visualizations isn't the ideal framework.

August 30, 2019 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

"Classic" is a word all too casually bandied about, but for Daniel Auteuil's screen adaptation of this beloved French trilogy it is completely apropos.

July 17, 2014 | Full Review…

One great performance... doesn't justify Auteuil's decision to remake a series of films that are an inextricable part of their own era.
