Longing to return to the hills he grew to love during a magical summer holiday, 11-year-old Marcel (Julien Ciamaca) finds happiness once again when his father, Joseph (Philippe Caubère), is provided access to a private footpath they can use to easily travel from Marseilles to Provence. Years later as an adult, Marcel purchases a castle and realizes it is the same estate his adoring mother Augustine (Nathalie Roussel) was always terrified to cross along their journey.

Based on the bestselling memoirs of French novelist, playwright and filmmaker Marcel Pagnol (the acclaimed author of Jean de Florette and Manon of the Spring), MY MOTHER'S CASTLE is a “carefully boisterous” and “tastefully joyous” (Los Angeles Times) continuation of the story of Pagnol's youth as recounted in the Yves Robert classic MY FATHER'S GLORY.
