We have the spoilers for the August 2020 Film Box from Boxwalla!
August Film Box Spoilers✨
So excited to tell you about the August Film Box in which we showcase THREE films of Marcel Pagnol in a beautifully produced boxed set by @criterioncollection. 😍
The set titled Marseille Trilogy, is set in the Provence region of France, & includes the following three films:
🎬 César (1936)
Marius & Fanny were based on a Pagnol’s plays while César was written as a film script.
✨Fun Fact✨: Pagnol is a great favorite of the wonderful Alice Waters @alicelouisewaters who named her acclaimed Chez Panisse after a character in one of Pagnol’s films, “the widower Panisse”.
I’d mentioned in a previous post, that there would be no Richard Linklater, no films of Noah Baumbach without Eric Rohmer, whom we showcased in the June Box. But then, there would be no Eric Rohmer & no French New Wave without Marcel Pagnol! 😍
As the great film critic André Bazin said, “If Pagnol is not the greatest auteur of the sound film, he is, in any case, something akin to its genius.”
What do you think of the spoiler?
