“My Father’s Glory” rated 4 out of 5

The recent showing of French film “My Father’s Glory” was generally well-received by the audience. Beautifully photographed and finely performed, this was a typical European film, with not much action, but a deeply absorbing tale of a boy coming of age and having to come to terms with the fact that his father is not better at everything, but has to prove himself. And what a triumph when he does so! The whole style of this film captured the period of middle-class life at the turn of the nineteenth century, when the telphone was a novelty, and perhaps not really the right instrument for a gentleman. A nice film with a joyous ending.
