Marius embarked on “La Malaisie”, yielding to the irrepressible call of the sea. He left behind his old father César and his fiancée Fanny, who was carrying his child. Fanny is a masterful continuation of the Marseille trilogy, filled with moments of tenderness, heartache, and hope. Director Marc Allégret skilfully captures the vivid and colourful atmosphere of Marseille, creating a poignant and sometimes amusing portrayal of heartbreak and its consequences.
