The other day I mentioned French writer Marcel Pagnol. The motion pictures Jean de Florette and its sequel Manon des Sources were based on his novels.
I just found the famous scene from his 1932 movie "Fanny", when a Marseille tram has to await the end of a boules game. The "capitaine" shoots and wins, but César - in colorful language loaded with hyperbole - disputes the win claiming he took one, if not two steps too many.
The rest of the 3:38 clip is another argument over who is the biggest liar in town but it ends in total harmony over a glass of pastis.
