Dividing Bar

a delightful tale of a boy and his brother growing up in France before the First World War and their time in Provence. A time when pleasures were simple before the rude awakening of the war.

Director Yves Robert has realised Pagnol's memoirs of his boyhood with total perfection. The whole film seems bathed in Provence sunlight - which makes the melancholy conclusion of the sequel to this film, Le Château de ma mère, even more powerful. One of the greatest films of boyhood ever - perhaps even THE greatest.

A really nice picture of a holiday in early 20th century Provence.

I feel like I'm just joining the bandwagon, but hey, I really enjoyed it!

Edit: I've just raised my rating to 10 (from 9) based on other movies I've seen... this really IS gold!

This is a movie for those who enjoy magic and nostalgia while floating away in childhood memories. It is the calm and enchanting story of the adventures of Marcel Pagnol. Julien Ciamaca does an outstanding job, he is handsome, naive and buoyant. The landscape and the narrative style make this movie, at least in my eyes, a real masterpiece. The entire story is full of nostalgia and deals with Marcel's very own perception of life. His friendship with Lili is honestly depicted and wonderfully staged. The boys do a great job, indeed. It is a tale that takes you back to contemporary France and revives the summer in the Provence region, a summer full of innocent joy and adventures. Inspiring and well-acted, the setting is beautiful and the music just perfect. All characters are well cast.
