This Trilogy is a complete disgrace. Some people in France have absolutely no understanding of what should not be adapted. The Pagnol's original trilogy is one of the best trilogy of all time. He managed to capture moments of life in Marseille like no other and his dialogs are still so entertaining. What is the point of shooting these sequences again, with costumes and modern acting (nice way of saying that Roger Hanin is a joke in this film).
What strikes me is the fact that such a project could have been financed. This is dangerous because they are destroying a classic by leaving such mediocrity to the young ones.
I noticed that Nicolas Ribowski didn't do much after this trilogy. For the greater good. This is a director who thought he liked Pagnol, but in fact tried to stole his notoriety and failed miserably in doing so.
