Director: Daniel Auteuil
Part one of Pagnol’s Marseilles Trilogy. Marius’ biggest dream is to embark on a boat and sail to a faraway land. Fanny has secretly been in love with Marius since her childhood; Marius, never admitting it, has always loved Fanny. One day, Marius is offered a job on an exploratory ship. Fanny confesses her love for him and thereby provokes a fight between Marius and Panisse, who despite his old age, has been courting Fanny. Torn between realising his ambition and his love for Fanny, Marius abandons his dream, to remain with Fanny, but he cannot ignore the call of the sea and decides to accept the job, leaving Fanny behind.
