AFA CINÉ-CLUB AND AUSTIN FILM SOCIETY PRESENT
the baker’s wife
Saturday Feb. 2nd | Monday Feb. 4th
6259 MIDDLE FISKVILLE RD, AUSTIN, TX 78752
By Marcel Pagnol, 1938, France – 133 min – Comedy in French with English subtitles
With Raimu, Ginette Leclerc, Fernand Charpin, Robert Vattier, Charles Blavette
For years, baker Aimable (Raimu) has fed the residents of his quiet little town in Provençal. When he discovers his young wife Aurélie (Ginette Leclerc) has absconded with a shepherd, he is so devastated that he simply stops baking. In desperation, the hungry townspeople mount a full-scale operation to track down the absent wife and get the Aimable’s ovens running again. Marcel Pagnol reunited with Raimu, star of his classic “Marseille Trilogy,” for this newly-restored classic once hailed by Orson Welles as one of the ten best films of all time.
AFA members get a $2.00 discount for these screenings! Check your inboxes for more info.
