** Justified: as in most Pagnol films, most characters have a strong Provençal accent and non-standard grammar. They would be hard to understand for the French man from most places (especially in the 2010s). May contribute to the "small village" feeling.

* FunWithForeignLanguages: The baker is surprisingly incompetent at identifying the language heard during the serenade scene. Is it Piemontese, Corsican, or Arabic? This guy lives in Provence, close to Italy, he should at least be able to tell a Romance language from Arabic. Especially absurd since someone not familiar with Piemontese would probably call it Italian.
