What are people saying?

  • OFF_FRAME's rating of the film Mamma Gógó

    I found this film oddly detached and uneffecting even though I have had my own Grandmother go through Alzheimers. The 'satire' on the film industry is nothing we didn't already know and was explored far better in 'the father of my children'. It is well photographed but that was about it for me. 2 stars

  • Dada Kubin's rating of the film Mamma Gógó

    “Mamma Gogo” mixes fantasy, fiction and reality in many ways, not just in the head of the Alzheimer patient. Some of the references to real life stay hidden to non-icelanders like me, but there’s enough to keep us wondering. “Mamma Gogo” pokes here (movie industry) and there (stock markets) but these elements remain quite superficial filling for the actual story of the mother and the moviemaking son.

  • FISCHER's rating of the film Mamma Gógó

    Une oeuvre plutôt réussie d'un des pontes de la cinématographie islandaise, qui raconte avec un humour distancié et pince-sans-rire, une tragédie humaine sur fond d'agiotage éhonté et scandaleux, ignorée sur grand écran dans l'hexagone...
