Favorite Foreign Film

La Bartavelle is the guinea fowl that the boy’s father and his uncle hunt in the hills of Provence

My favorite foreign film comes as a package of two. The films are based on the books written by Marcel Pagnol and the first is “La Gloire de Mon Pere” My Father’s Glory and the sequel “Le Chateau de Ma Mere” My Mother’s Castle. The two books/movies follow a young boy and his childhood in southern France in the early 1900’s I believe. You see the magnificence of Provence where they spend their vacation and the lovely city of Marseilles where they spend the school year since the father is a school teacher. I fell in love with the entire family and the countryside. It transports you to paradise.
