MARCEL PAGNOL - ONE OF FRANCE'S GREATEST 20C WRITERS

Feb. 28th. Celebrating the birthdate of French author Marcel Pagnol (1895-1974) one of France's greatest 20th century writers, who excelled in almost every genre - memoir, novel, play and film.

2 of my all-time favorite Pagnol-themed films are La Gloire de mon pere (My Father's Glory) and Le Chateau de ma mere (My Mother's Castle). They are both a 'must see'. (View My Father's Glory first.) 


"The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past better than it was, the present worse than it is, and the future less resolved than it will be." Marcel Pagnol from Brainyquote.com
