Critics reviews

…Angèle rambles, but always with a purpose; every time the plot or characters dawdle, the real world leaks through in all its wonder. Pagnol’s people have lots of air around them, and the sun splashes their faces and the rocky countryside like a glittering paintbrush so that the light exuberantly overflows the borders of every frame. One emerges gratefully drenched in the warmth of these people, this time, and these places.
