The aim of this study was to evaluate the basic concepts of multigenerational Family Therapy and to evaluate the scenes of the film ''My Father and My Son'' according to these concepts. For these purposes firstly basic concepts of Multigenerational Family Therapy such as differentiation of self, triangles/triangulation, nuclear family emotional system, family projection process, emotional cut off, multigenerational transmission process, sibling position, societal regression and genogram technique of this therapy were explained. Then, in order to clarify family relations in the film, the family genogram of the family was drawn. Finally, sixteen scenes of the film which depict the basic concepts of Multigenerational Family Therapy were examined. Results of this examination showed that family members of the three generations usually had low levels of differentiation. Furthermore, some basic concepts of Multigenerational Family Therapy such as triangles, nuclear family emotional system, emotional cut off, family projection process, differentiation of self, multigenerational transmission process were evident in all three generations family. In short, the film "My Father and My Son" can be a rich source in Multigenerational Family Therapy training.
