Critic Reviews for Marius and Jeannette
A charming, easygoing portrait of a bunch of characters in a Marseilles neighborhood...
Guediguian is a smooth enough director, but it's his casting and some episodes in the screenplay that transfix us.
The environment is squalid, the politics naive, the humor fey (and not funny), the narrative barely there.
There's no question that Jeannette is a richly imagined character, and Ascariade knows exactly how to capture all her moods. But the other people here are largely defined by a trait or two or a political statement.
Audience Reviews for Marius and Jeannette
I haven't seen or heard from Robert Guediguian in awhile which is a real shame. I enjoyed his slice of life treatments of Marseilles and the humanity of its residents. This was the crowning jewel.
