Ma mère

Directed by Christophe Honoré
France, 2004
  • French
  • English


Based on George Bataille’s posthumous and controversial novel: When his father dies, a young man is introduced by his attractive, amoral mother to a world of hedonism and depravity.

Our take

The allure of motherhood has attracted filmmakers since cinema’s early days—the large legacy of indelible on-screen mums proves it. With the fearless Huppert (who else?) as his partner in crime, Honoré boldly pushes boundaries in Ma Mère, a sun-drenched, transgressive tale of incest and obsession.
