Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Fanny, the second panel of Marcel Pagnol's trilogy, which was nominated for Best Picture, is not as strong as the other segments, though the young lovers have some charm and Charles Boyer is as always reliable."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Overblow but entertaining thanks to Boyer and Chevalier."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"The film is as much a visual feast as it is a dramatic delight."
‑ Felix Gonzalez Jr., DVD Review
"The spirit of the true France seeps into the film not through the locations or the extras, but through the hearts and experience of the three leads"
‑ Douglas Pratt, DVDLaser
