Chicago Reader review:
Marc Allegret's 1932 film of part two of Marcel Pagnol's trilogy. In Marius the boy and girl were separated; now Fanny prepares to marry the kind old merchant—until the unexpected return of Marius threatens to overturn her plans. A marvelously alive film, well suited to the vitality of Pagnol's story, and a perfect sequel to Korda's first installment. Pagnol was to assume directorial control with the next part.
Here (and above) is the opening.
