A Childhood in Provence
Based on the childhood memoirs of Marcel Pagnol, author of Jean de Florette and Manon des Sources, La Gloire de Mon Pére and its companion Le Château de Ma Mére are two of the greatest and most successful French films ever made.
An adult Marcel fondly recalls one idyllic summer spent with his family in the hills of Provence. A love affair with the country began and during those sundrenched, perfect days he found new respect for his school-teacher father as he adapted to life away from the city.
One of cinema's finest celebrations of childhood, My Father's Glory is filled with warmth, humour and nostalgia for the bygone days of a youth spent among the rocky hills of turn-of-the-century Provence.
