Marseilles, 1920s. Torn between his wanderlust and his eye for beautiful shellfish hawker (Bélézy), Marius (Personnaz) is mortified to find a wealthy older man steal her hand, if not her affections. Blunt advice from dad Cesar (Auteuil) pushes his towards a big decision...
A surprising resurrection of the old Pagnol tale, its a tad stagey but charming with it.
