What's often billed as the Marseille Trilogy is, succinctly, the slow and steady story of girl chases boy, girl loses boy. As told through the eyes of playwright-turned-filmmaker Marcel Pagnol, the seriocomic trilogy of Marius (1931), Fanny (1932), and César (1936) introduces us to exquisitely drawn characters. There's the fresh-faced Fanny and her conflicted lover Marius who tries to follow mathematically impossible drink recipes from his widowed father César, plus a host of other seaside townsfolk: a wealthy sail-maker, a cheerful ferry captain and a half-sly, half-naïve port inspector. The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, presents all three classics this weekend so stay in town and catch them all. Marius screens at 7 p.m. March 24, Fanny screens at 7 p.m. March 25 and César screens at 5 p.m. March 26. In French with English subtitles.
