Movie Info

This moving love story by Marcel Pagnol is set at the Old Port of Marseille, in the Bar de la Marine, run by César and his son Marius. A dreamer, Marius sees a life for himself on the sea, embarking on one of the many ships that sail by each day heading off to distant horizons. Fanny, a young woman who sells shellfish outside the bar, is secretly in love with Marius (who has always secretly loved her back). When Marius finally gets his chance to go to sea, Fanny plots to keep him back by revealing her love for him and stirring his jealousy vis-à-vis another man who is enamored of her. Marius must struggle between the call of the ocean and his love for Fanny, at the risk of sacrificing that which is most important to him. (C) Kino

Critic Reviews for Marius

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

It's not entirely clear what this faithful, slightly creaky new rendering, adapted and directed by the actor Daniel Auteuil, has to offer.

July 3, 2014 | Full Review…

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

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

Slight in every conceivable aspect, it's the initial chapter in a continuing provincial trilogy of wayward love and strict adherence to social norms, here related without any kind of additional panache.

August 30, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

Marius... is all protracted setup, taking 94 minutes to tell the same basic story that the soft-rock 1970s hit "Brandy (You're A Fine Girl)" manages in just three.

July 15, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Utterly delightful, almost uncanny in its perfect period confidence and brio, this is a reminder once more of why we love French films.

July 3, 2014 | Full Review…

Daniel Auteuil's less exercising diligent homage than indulging troglodytic cinephilia.
