Reviews for this film from our members:
[New – 6/11/15] | Samuel Castro @ Ochoymedio.info [Spanish]
Excerpt: Un trabajo soberbio de su reparto le permite a Xavier Dolan continar por la senda del éxito en los festivales, con esta película intensa y emotiva que explora el amor de una madre, que es muchas madres, por su hijo.
Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
Excerpt: [Dolan]’s found Pilon as (an exaggerated?) stand-in to honor unconditional maternal love in a bravura film which won the Cannes Grand Jury prize. The 139 minute movie never lags, by turns exhilarating and exhausting.
Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
Excerpt: That the result is a film that feels intimate and genuine about these characters is a testament to how well Dolan exploits the phony trappings.
Panagiotis Gkaris @ Movies Ltd. [Greek]
Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
Excerpt: Edge and emotionally explosive, it individualizes an exhausting struggle many parents are forced to endure.
Travis Hopson @ Examiner
Excerpt: Heartbreaking, joyous, sad, and glorious, Mommy is pure exhilaration
Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
Excerpt: Anne Dorval will nail you to the floor. She may play a woman who seems to relish in making questionable life choices, but she does it in the most convincing way possible.
Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
Excerpt: As human drama, it’s wild and alive but controlled and intimate, and as pure filmmaking, it’s bravura. At a walloping 139 minutes, “Mommy” is never less than captivating.
Alan Mattli @ Facing the Bitter Truth [German]
Excerpt: Xavier Dolan’s fifth film in five year is by far his best. Simon Miraudo @ Quickflix
Pat Mullen @ Cinemablographer
Excerpt: Dolan proves himself a cinematic force with this searing, audacious film.
Jonathan Richards @ www.jonrichardsplace.com
Excerpt: Dolan’s work is sometimes abrasive and shrill, but it also can be very affecting and insightful.
