Harvest

Allegorical peasant drama (1937) by Marcel Pagnol, author of the Marius/Fanny/Cesar trilogy, with a farmer and a cabaret singer coming together to resurrect a deserted village. More than most, Pagnol's films seem to represent the shortcomings of the pastoral “art cinema” of the 30s, but his handling of actors (including, here, Fernandel) often transcends the triteness of his conceptions. In French with subtitles. 127 min.
