  2. Mathieu Langlois's rating of the film The Mother and the Whore

    Desperately needs the Criterion treatment.

  3. Wortzik's rating of the film The Mother and the Whore

    "Movies teach you how to live, how to make a bed". (Alexandre)

  4. Polyglot's rating of the film The Mother and the Whore

    I sometimes have a hard time relating to films dealing with pretty people and their sex life. :(

  5. T. J. Harman's rating of the film The Mother and the Whore

    WHEN is criterion or a good substitute going to put this film out on DVD/blu?? I had to travel into another city to a college area video store (they're still around) to get a vhs copy. This film is amazing. It makes me want to live in France during the late 60s/early 70s and it's not even the most glamerous depiction of that time. The performances are amazing.

  6. lauli's rating of the film The Mother and the Whore

    Blown away by the great performances, wonderful dialogue, superb music... An unforgettable experience.

  7. Adam Cook's rating of the film The Mother and the Whore

    Eustache & Leaud resurrect all of the pathos of Antoine Doinel circa The 400 Blows in one of the greatest french films. Once again Leaud is a lost boy, perhaps in a country lost as well. One of those rare works during which you find your heart swelling exponentially as it continues. Perfect. Reminds me of top-form Allen and Sang-soo in a way. Also Les hautes solitudes and although some may resent this, Chasing Amy.

  10. La Schiff's rating of the film The Mother and the Whore

  11. Manny Lage's rating of the film The Mother and the Whore

    Got to see a 35mm print thanks to Harmony Korine and the Belcourt Theater. Perfection. An unforgettable experience. Well worth the 11-hour drive.

  12. Laali's rating of the film The Mother and the Whore

    Jean-Pierre Léaud at his best.

  13. Joshuah's rating of the film The Mother and the Whore

    Such a film epitomizes the French New Wave, even if it came a shade later. Relatively simple in structure yet its emotion-ridden, complex characters and their seemingly exhausting dialogue make for one of the most brilliant films French Cinema has to offer. Why this film appears not more well know, and not a Criterion release yet, is beyond me. Don't even look a the length and see how quick it goes.

  14. lukasbicho's rating of the film The Mother and the Whore

    La mejor película que he visto en mi vida.

  15. Guy Sands's rating of the film The Mother and the Whore

    When will I ever see a proper print of this film?

  16. Filmy's rating of the film The Mother and the Whore

    Alexandre reminds me of certain so'me'one

  17. occam's rating of the film The Mother and the Whore

    It is hard to find movies, who explore new kind of relationships. This one might be a bit long and overdone, but it presents some unusual characters and their relations. Only one question remains: Are they believable?

  18. REH1101's rating of the film The Mother and the Whore

  19. Edwin N's rating of the film The Mother and the Whore

    Reduced me to tears.Brave,brave words. A true masterpiece, one of the most important films of all-time.

  20. Dusty B's rating of the film The Mother and the Whore

  21. Andy Oettl's rating of the film The Mother and the Whore

    One might expect that watching three people sitting in cafés and talking for four hours would be boring. But uncompromising as it is, the film is an intense, rewarding and pure cinematic experience.
