5.0 out of 5 stars Favorite French Films.
To get both of these films in one set is a bargain. Blu-ray disc quality is very good. Subtitles in English cannot be switched off, so if you speak French it is better to get the French release from Amazon in France.

1.0 out of 5 stars quality
I was disappointed by the poor sound quality of this item. There was a constant background hum and the sub-titles were not wholly visible.

The setting and photography were stunning, the acting was superb, and the simple, moving story make these movies a joy to watch. I can thoroughly recommend them. The beauty of the scenery means that following subtitles is no chore at all.

Gentle, fascinating, transports the viewer to another world - if you loved Jean de Fleurette you'll love this. One of those films you'll always remember.

This review is from: La Gloire de Mon Père & Le Château de Ma Mère Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
Two lovely,gentle and wistful French films about a boy growing up in Marseilles and Provence. Beautifully filmed and full of light humour and a little drama.sad also how the second film(Le chateau....) ends.After the idyllic days of childhood death and the dark shadow of war ends an era of peace and seemingly never-ending summer.Delightfully acted as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Evocative of another era in France!, 7 Dec 2012
By 
I have longed to see these films since I first did so nearly 20 years ago. Every bit as stunning and evocative as 'Jean de Florette' and 'Manon des Sources' (very popular films in the late 80's also based on Marcel Pagnol's novels)and conveying all that is wonderful about the landscape of Southern France and the world from a child's perspective. I simply must see these again...

Both these films are so beautiful to watch, definitely something from a bygone era - no violence, no sexual scenes. Wonderful cinematography and acting. French film making par excellence.
