Victorien Delamare in My Mother's Castle

My Mother's Castle

1990 PG

Yves Robert directs this film based on the humorous best-selling memoirs of French novelist and filmmaker Marcel Pagnol, which highlights the alluring, magical country life of turn-of-the-century Provence. Young Marcel's mother longs for the tranquility of Bastide Neuve after spending a summer there and encourages her family to make the nine-mile trek on foot. They shorten the journey by cutting across a private estate, which lands them in trouble.
