Picking up moments after the end of
Marius, this film follows Fanny’s grief after Marius’s departure—and her realization that she’s pregnant. Panisse continues courting her and embraces the baby’s impending arrival as a gift, so long as its paternity remains a secret. Fanny and Panisse wed, but after her baby’s birth, Marius returns unexpectedly and demands what he believes is still his.

“Orane Demazis’s Fanny has a mental agility and toughness that make her into a formidable woman.” - –

“To discuss these films as examinations of “bourgeois morality” and “gender roles” is to undercut their plainspoken complexity and charm. As the characters commit to their momentous decisions, then struggle to live with them, they reveal unexpected facets of their personalities. Charpin’s Panisse becomes casually heroic—a portrait of a comical petit bourgeois as a gallant domestic knight. Fresnay’s Marius, who at first registers as an aging arrested adolescent, grows more stirring as his bitterness deepens. And Demazis’s Fanny acquires a mental agility and toughness that make her into a formidable woman.” - –
Michael Sragow, Film Comment |full review

“Most of Pagnol’s Marseillaise appear somewhat comic, especially when in fits of pique and paroxysms of fury, but it is Demazis’s Fanny alone who experiences the full weight of the tragedy she’s experiencing—a woman trying to make the savor of one moment of youthful passion last the whole of a lifetime, her sloe-eyed, sharp-featured face hugely compelling in a few scant close-ups.” - Nick Pinkerton,
