The third part of the Fanny Trilogy opens, some twenty years after Fanny, with the confessions of Panisse on his deathbed. True to form, these occasion something other than tears—digressions so lengthy and so funny Panisse forgets to die. The son he has raised with Fanny (with a little help from “godfather” César) is now old enough to track down his real father. And so the story of Fanny and Marius begins again. Love is revolution in every sense of the word. “Today the modest charms and graces of the Pagnol trilogy seem more precious than ever” (Time Out).
