Restored and released as a double feature on Blu Ray for the first time ever in North America, Film Movement presents the adaptations of famous French novelist Marcel Pagnol's important works, MY FATHER'S GLORY, and its sequel, MY MOTHER'S CASTLE. MY FATHER'S GLORY: At the end of the nineteenth century, little Marcel lives with his parents in the Provence countryside. During his holiday, Marcel meets Lili, a local boy who knows all the secrets of the hills, and the two become fast friends. Adapted from the novel by Marcel Pagnol (MANON OF THE SPRING). MY MOTHER'S CASTLE: In this sequel to MY FATHER'S GLORY, young Marcel Pagnol (Julien Ciamaca) and his family move back to their home in Marseilles, France, far from their pastoral holiday cottage in the hills. Determined, Marcel makes the long voyage back to the cottage on foot and lands himself in trouble. One day Marcel's father (Philippe Caubère) discovers a shortcut to the cottage, but it requires trespassing. Despite their trepidations, Marcel and his family begin using the secret trail to reach their cottage. Adapted from the novel by Marcel Pagnol (author of MANON OF THE SPRING).

Bonus feature: Heritage and Nostalgia video essay by Ludovic Cortade, Associate Professor in French Literature, Thought and Culture at New York University.
