Born in Aubagne on February 1895, son of Joseph Pagnol and Augustine Lansot, Marcel Pagnol had a classical and republican education, tinged with anticlericalism. As the son of a schoolmaster, from a very early age he developed a passion for classics and created at the age of 19 the literary magazine "FORTUNIO", in which were released critical reviews on drama plays and lyrical works as well as a serial novel called "PIROUETTES"...

Une parole...

Most certainly, Pagnol's methods are like no other. Not only is he his own scriptwriter, dialogue writer and director, working for his own company and on his own land, but the films he shoots are also pure works, as handcrafted objects shaped by his hands, with his comrades. Marcel Pagnol here crafts a rake and there moves the miller's table... There is no hierarchy in this world, no separate skills; work is a joint venture...
