My Father's Glory (original French title: La Gloire de mon père) is a 1990 French film directed by Yves Robert, based on the book of the same name by Marcel Pagnol. The sequel, which was also filmed by Robert in 1990, is My Mother's Castle.
Young Marcel was born in the country but raised in Marseille. His father, Joseph, is a hard-working strongly atheist public school teacher in Marseilles. Marcel's Aunt Rose marries the round, jovial, and very theistic and Roman Catholic Uncle Jules. Joseph and Uncle Jules come into conflict over religion. Over summer break, Joseph and Jules decide to take their respective families to a house in the country. Here, Jules decides to educate Joseph on hunting. Marcel wants to come hunting with them, but the two adults lie to him and leave the house while he is still just waking up. He follows them stealthily. Jules is making a fool out of Joseph with his hunting prowess which angers Marcel. He gets lost in the wilderness when Marcel meets a boy called Lili who tells him where the hunting party are. Joseph takes potshots at two rock partridges which fall to ground beside Marcel. He watches as Jules reprimands Joseph for shooting at and missing the birds. At this point, Marcel reveals himself and the partridges. Later, Lili, who knows everything about the countryside, becomes Marcel's friend and teaches him about the ways of the countryside.
