THE BAKER'S WIFE (1938, FRANCE)


The baker really needs to keep a keener eye on the missus
in The Baker's Wife

"Director Marcel Pagnol's village vignettes are superb and completely revelatory, telling us all we need to know about the village and its life, telling it so deftly we scarcely are conscious of his having bothered to describe it."-Frank S. Nugent, The New York Times, February 26, 1940
----
Pagnol's story is about a village. Those living in the village rely on the village baker for their bread. The baker relies on his wife for emotional support. His wife runs off with a shepherd. The baker is too depressed to bake his bread. The village makes a plan to get the wife back. 

That description really doesn't do The Baker's Wife justice. It is a charming film with eccentric characters whose living arrangements are thrown into disarray by the disappearance of the wife. Much of the comedy relies on the plot to get her back, as well as mach of the amusing and perceptive dialogue from Marcel Pagnol. Based on a novel by Jean Giono.-Chris Cox, 1001: A Film Odyssey

  1. It is charming indeed. I liked it a lot more than I expected to, both for surface fun, but also the deeper elements that are there. It is easy to rule the baker out as a bufoon, but in the ending he reveals a lot more sensitivity than we would have expected.

  18. 225% more energy? Is that exact? And I've been wanting to use the word Beta-Hydroxybutyrate on this blog, I've just not found a good place to fit it in before.
