Le Schpountz de Marcel Pagnol

Lunch time was always too short when the Schpounz made his apparition

I am not sure that non French speaker will get this. But if you do understand French, this is one of my favourite movie of all times. A classic with the actor Fernandel (photo) in which a man full of ambition but a bit simple-minded belives he’s to become a huge actor in paris and leave his village to achieve his dreams. Alas the movie crew is making fun of him but he does nto realise it at all and stay in character: le Schpountz. If you have the chance, watch the movie, until you get there is a sneak preview, that makes my lunch time always a treat.
