ig_____or's rating of the film Mia madre

I liked it, but I didn't love it. Margherita Buy was wonderful and owned her role. John Tuturro's was funny but not THAT funny and seemed a little forced in an otherwise pretty depressing film about a terrible, but natural, situation. The moments that tricked you, with dreams and thoughts, were a nice touch, but when the moment finally came, it wasn't as strong as I would have wished. Perfect final scene, though.
