New Blu Ray Releases This Week: June 20th 2017

Blu Ray release June 20th with The Marseille Trilogy

The Marseille Trilogy release on June 20th 2017

Here is the top new blu-ray release for the week of June 20th and, this time, we are focusing on just one title, The Marseille Trilogy.

Based on Marcel Pagnol’s play and set in 1930’s Marseille (where’s yours truly is from) this love story between a bar owner’s daughter and a sailor is an old school mix of comedy and melodrama. As for most trilogies, the first chapter Marius is the strongest, the following Fanny and Cesar being lesser efforts – by the end, melodrama has pretty much taken over humor. With particularly sharp dialogues, The Marseille Trilogy will particularly appeal to French speakers and fans of classic French movies.
