J'ai tué ma mère: film

Directed by Xavier Dolan, 96 min, 2010

Teenager Hubert haughtily regards his mother with contempt, and only sees her tacky sweaters and kitsch decorations. In addition to these irritating surface details, there is also his parent’s cherished mechanisms of manipulation and guilt.

Confused by this love/hate relationship that obsesses him more and more each day, Hubert drifts through the mysteries of adolescence – artistic discoveries, illicit experiences, the opening-up to friendship, and ostracism.

The turbulent relationship between mother and son unfolds with a compelling combination of savage fury and melting affection.

The stunning, semi-autobiographical directing debut of 20-year-old actor Xavier Dolan.
