Critic Reviews for Fanny
Fanny, the second panel of Marcel Pagnol's trilogy, which was nominated for Best Picture, is not as strong as the other segments, though the young lovers have some charm and Charles Boyer is as always reliable.
The spirit of the true France seeps into the film not through the locations or the extras, but through the hearts and experience of the three leads
Overblow but entertaining thanks to Boyer and Chevalier.
