100 Ratings


A 50-year-old housewife, Manana, struggles with a dilemma: she has to choose between her family life and a love for writing she has repressed for years. When she finally decides to follow her passion, she is ready to sacrifice everything for it, mentally and physically.

Our take

A sensational and startling debut from Ana Urushadze, this bewitchingly offbeat psychodrama was Georgia’s official entry to the 2017 Oscars®. A meta-fictional plunge into the terrors and tribulations of the artistic process, Scary Mother takes a thrilling journey into the heart of the creative ego.
