Marius is a young man who loves his gruff and good-natured father César, and also Fanny, who sells shells in front of César’s bar. Since his childhood, the desire to run the world inflames him. He doesn’t want to abandon his father, who might die of grief, nor Fanny, who thinks only of him. And yet the sea is there…  Marius is a timeless film that explores the complexities of desire and duty, leaving audiences with a bittersweet reflection on the paths we choose in matters of the heart.
