FRA | 1936 | dir. Marcel Pagnol, with Raimu, Orane Demazis, Fernand Charpin

In César, the last of Pagnol’s trilogy, we move some twenty years on from Marius. Honoré Panisse is dying, cheerfully, with friends, wife, and son at his side. He confesses to the priest in front of his friends, but, cannot bring himself to tell his son Cesariot that his real father is the estranged Marius. Leaving it to Fanny to reveal the truth to the young lad, who will have no other choice than reuniting with his father.
