Xavier Dolan – Tadros is a man whom the film director and actor Cannes loves. He entered Cannes at the age of 19 with the movie I killed my mother, and won the Jury Award with Mommy last year and got the title of ‘young master’. Besides this year, he was commissioned to judge the Cannes Film Festival. Today, I’m going to introduce Mommy.
The film is about the various events where the mother and son with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) live in their house. The son Steve, the main character in the film, has a lack of affection and loses patience when he is angry, he destroys surrounding areas. But he loves his mother very much.
Dian who has a hard time in her life, is trying to stand upright in front of her son and has the burden of responsibility for him, but she realizes that responsibility is the power of her life. Because she loves her son, she is trying to do anything for him.
In addition to these two, with Kyla living next door, they talk about hope, love, deficiency and different countermeasures with each other. In this process, you cannot help thinking of them as lovely.
Also, this is a 1:1 aspect ratio for a unique device in this film. This film is shown in a 1:1 ratio on-screen. It felt painful at first, but people, facial expressions and objects stick out with narrow proportions. In particular, the moment when the narrow rate is suddenly widened there’s a scene that cannot be forgotten after watching the whole film.
In addition to this performance, the color and light displayed in the film are impressive. The lights shine brightly and by expressing primary color like red and yellow, make the film’s atmosphere warm.
Mommy is a dark story on the inside, but has warmth and light. It is so lovely.
