About the Film

My Father's Glory (La gloire de mon père) is the first of French director Yves Robert's two films based on the memoirs of filmmaker/author Marcel Pagnol. In the early 1900s, young Marcel (Julien Ciamaca) makes regular trips with his family to their quaint farmhouse in the countryside surrounding Provence. One summer, Marcel's uncle (Didier Pain) comes along. His Uncle's Catholicism immediately clashes with the agnosticism of Marcel's school-teacher father (Philippe Caubere). During a pheasant hunt, the uncle hopes to prove his superiority over the father. So what happens? Take a glance at the film's title for a clue. My Father's Glory was followed up by the equally delightful My Mother's Castle (91).

Praise

The film was nominated for 6 awards and won twice, including Best Film at the Seattle International Film Festival.

“My Father’s Glory” is the first in a series of two films that creep up on you with small moments of warmth and charm.
