The Reviews for My Mother's Castle (1990) 720p

perhaps the best French film I have ever seenReviewed byMartinHaferVote: 7/10

I really enjoyed this film tremendously. There were no grand special effects, dazzling action or exciting twists--just unbelievably beautiful film-making! This is a biographical tale based on the childhood of the great French director/writer Marcel Pagnol. In fact, it is because of my love of his films that I sought out this videotape and the prequel, My Father's Glory. If you have not seen the Fanny trilogy (or the single film by the same title starring Leslie Caron), The Baker's Wife, Harvest, Manon of the Spring or any of his other films, try to see them!! What makes all these films so wonderful is the superb writing and how his characters come to life. They are charming, full of foibles and yet quite lovable! And this is definitely true in this movie as well.

This movie picks up right where the prequel stopped--complete with the same actors. This was possible, as the films were filmed together and came out the same year.

Of the two films, My Mother's Castle is definitely the best--though they are both extraordinary films. What I liked about this film was that it was able to evoke so much emotion within me. For example, near the end I found myself laughing loudly at the scene involving the VERY nasty guard as he gets his comeuppance! Then, only minutes later I was sobbing at the profound sadness about Pagnol's later life (after the main story is over, there is a gut-wrenching epilogue). It's profoundly sad, but since it is based on real life, so necessary.

Watch this film with your entire family--even the cynical members of the family are sure to enjoy!

A beautiful glimpse of the author's nostalgiaReviewed bythree-mVote: 7/10

Yves Robert offers a second delightful story of Marcel Pagnol's innocent youth of the early 1900s in the sunny, rocky landscape of Aubagne in Provence.

After "My Father's Glory," an equally charming tale of the halcyon days of the author's childhood, "My Mother's Castle" concludes the tale with the author's entrance into adolescence and his triumphant return to Marseilles as a successful adult.

Not wishing to wait through the long term at school, Marcel's mother declares her affinity for the countryside of Provence, and the family begins making weekend visits, much to the delight of young Marcel.

Pagnol revisits his beautiful hills in Aubagne, just outside Marseilles, rekindling his friendship with the local boy, Lili, and meeting what he considers to be the young woman of his dreams, only to reaffirm that youth is best spent frolicking with his chum. Marcel's charming and loving mother, his wise and benevolent father, his impish brother, and his gregarious "Oncle Jules" return in their wonderful roles.

The film is reminiscent of the masterpiece of "Cinema Paradiso," where a tale is told through the eyes of a film producer who fell in love with life while watching films in his small Italian village.

"My Mother's Castle," coupled with "My Father's Glory," make for four hours of triumphant, genuine cinema. Don't miss them.

Enchanting and engagingReviewed byAndrew-43Vote: 7/10

This is a memorable film.

When I watched it for the first time I couldn't place a time frame on it. It really does appear timeless in many ways.

The story of Marcel's life is engaging, as are the wonderful characters, especially Marcel's parents.

It is very easy to watch, with beautiful light and scenery. The images glow.

I have to see My Father's Glory now...
