LA GLOIRE DE MON PÈRE & LE CHATEAU DE MA MERE
2 films by YVES ROBERT
based on the novels by Marcel Pagnol
Based on the childhood memoirs of Marcel Pagnol, author of Jean de Florette and Manon des Sources, Yves Roberts La Gloire de Mon Père and its sequel Le Château de Ma Mère are two of the most loved and successful French films ever made.
An adult Marcel nostalgically recalls idyllic retreats with his family to the hills of Provence. A love affair with the country began and during those perfect days he found new respect for his school-teacher father as he adapted to life away from the city, while the long journey there would soon bring its own adventures.
Together these timeless classics stand as one of cinemas greatest celebrations of childhood, filled with warmth, love and a poignant nostalgia for bygone days they continue to captivate audiences.
