The Hunchback of the Provence
11 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

Although Pagnol is only the "supervisor" here,I thought for a long time he was the director .Anyway ,the movie is Pagnolesque to a fault,even if it is based upon a -not very famous- short story by Emile Zola.

In "Angèle" (1934)Fernandel was cast as a half-wit,in love with his boss's daughter who was seduced by a bad boy from Marseille town.

In "Naïs" ,Fernandel is cast as a hunchback,in love with a fisherman's daughter ;enter Frederic (Raymond Pellegrin)a guy from the town.Guess what happens.Well,Frederic seduces Naïs the girl and her father is not prepared to accept it.

This may seem trite,but this two-hour movie is never boring:the beautiful landscapes of Provence,the charming Jacqueline Bouvier (soon to become Mrs Pagnol and the future star of the first version of "Manon des Sources " where she meets again Raymond Pellegrin cast as the schoolteacher),some suspenseful scenes and above all Fernandel,as strong an actor in tragedy as he was in comedy.
