Part two of the Marseille Trilogy, Fanny settles in for a more intimate look at the travails of Fanny’s life with Panisse, the man who stepped up when her honor was at stake. Thanks to a deal brokered in part by Fanny’s mother and the wise but crusty César, Fanny will get financial security and avoid scandal and shame, while Panisse gets what he wants. Well, half of what he wants, anyway. Newcomer Victoire Belezy is more than up for the task of conveying Fanny’s emotional turmoil, while seasoned actor Jean-Pierre Darroussin brings a sure hand to the sympathetic senior Panisse, who is hoping to wrest some genuine love from the arrangement. As long as Marius stays out of the picture, he has a chance.
