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
I first saw Le Chateau de ma mère and La Gloire de mon père shortly after their release in 1990. At first, I gave a higher ranking to Le Chateau. I just saw the two movies again, and now it's La Gloire who's coming on first.
But it is not to say that Le Chateau is not a good movie. It's an EXCELLENT movie. The saga of Marcel continues. Young Marcel Pagnol that is. The cast is again great: Philippe Caubère and Nathalie Roussel shine, Juline Ciamaca does a great job as Marcel.
And, once again, we get a taste of life in France's countryside, its colors, its ways of doing things. Great!
Too bad, there was not a third movie to follow La Gloire and Le Chateau.
See this one!
Out of 100, I gave it 86. That's good for ***? out of ****. I gave La Gloire de mon père the same star rating, but 87 out of 100.
Seen again at home, in Toronto, on August 11th, 2002.
Both of these films are excellent autobiographical recollections of the author's youth. I enjoyed them both very much as the subject matter is delivered with aplomb and the photography is stunning.
They really take you back to this era, romantic in approach but doesn't neglect the real hardships experienced in that period. The way all emotions are played out is masterful.
He also wrote Jean de Flotette and Manon des Sources. If you haven't seen them but enjoyed Le Chateau de ma mère and La Gloire de mon père then I recommend you do as they are both in a similar vein and are even more stunning.
