Mommy ★★★★★

“Our mothers always remain the strangest, craziest people we've ever met.” ― Marguerite Duras

* Kudos to all those mothers out there who struggle in this crazy ass world with limited resources to bring up their children themselves deprived of a father figure.

* Anne Dorval is a force of nature,she drained my soul emotionally..She is a juggernaut of feelings..To maintain normalcy in the face of chaos is applaud worthy in itself and she gives the performance of her career as well as one the year's best!

* Suzanne Clement is a grenade bomb under the facade of unsurety.

*Struggling with inner demons whilst convincing your own loved ones that nothing is wrong was hands down the most powerful scene i have seen in cinema the whole year,Antoine-Olivier Pilon is a true find!

*Xavier Dolan has a gift for juxtaposing songs and colors in a delightful palette.

*Combines the rage of I Killed My Mother and the calmness of We Need to Talk About Kevin and delivers a knock out punch.

*Brimming with Oedipal Overtones,loneliness and non conformism.

* This Winner of the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival is my choice for the best movie of the year!
