Mommy is a Canadian film directed by Xavier Dolan and released in 2014. It’s a drama film and it was presented at the Cannes Film Festival in 2014 and won the Jury Award. This movie is a great success.

That’s the story of a mother and his son. In Canada, a new law appears and allows distressed parents to abandon their troubled children to the hospital system. Diane “Die” Despres, a single mother, must pick her teenage son Steve from the institution where he lives, because he causes several problems and this time, he hurts a little boy who were in the same hospital that him. Steve, who has ADHD, is wild and violent, yet charismatic. At the heart of their problems, they try to make ends meet, thanks to unexpected help from the opposite neighbor, Kyla. All three begin to find an equilibrium shape, and soon hope.

For me, this is a beautiful movie which create a lot of emotions to the spectator. All of this film is great; the story, the various plans, the actors, the music etc… everything is perfectly synchronized. It became one of my favorite movies and I recommend to watch this perfect film!! Xavier Dolan has a real talent and he has also his own style.

The work of the director is exceptional but also in other realisations like the clip written and executed by Xavier Dolan for Indochine:

  1. I totally agree with you. It’s one of the best movie I saw. The story, the actors and the different plans are really upsetting. I’m looking forward to see it again.

  2. This is a great movie ! I think you would like another movie of Xavier Dolan, entitled « I Killed my mother ». As in « Mommy », the director talks about the difficult relation between a mother and her son and it creates a lot a emotions to the spectator too ! I advise you to see it !!

  3. It was the first Xavier Dolan’s film I saw,and I wasn’t disappointed ! The actors are really talented, and some passages are so funny ! And I love the use of differents format (from the 4/3 to the 16/9 !) But honestly, it is so hard to understand Canadian French !
