My Mother's Castle is the distilled essence of nostalgia for lost childhood - we see the hero's story in a golden light of memory, where the desserts are always the most tempting that could ever be, and the dishes never get dirty. The cinematography is stunning - the exact evocation of that warm and golden place in our memories. And the ending is, like it says - stunning, satisfying, perfect. I just love this movie - it's one of life's little miracles.

Heartrendingly beautiful, sad, and satisfyingReviewed byChris NVote: 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.
A family that makes weekly trips to the French countryside decides to reduce the trip time by cutting through the properties of some neighbors, leading to conflicts. Based on Pagnol's autobiographical novel about his youth, this is a gentle family film that is enjoyable enough but fails to become anything more than a pleasant diversion. The tone is low-key, and perhaps too much so. The coda, where the story flashes forward from the protagonist's childhood to adulthood, seems tacked on and rather ludicrous. Pagnol's novels "Jean de Florette" and "Magnon of the Spring" were turned into fabulous films, but this novel does not translate as well to the screen.
