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.
