Mon fils à moi (movie)

I am a very sensitive person and it is hard for me to keep my nervousness. This movie about a mother's love and a son's struggle for independence is very gripping.

The plot is very simple so the audience is forced to concentrate on the characters of this surprisingly typical family. It is told in slow but very tense pacing. The emotional scenes are subdued and yet very powerful.

The performances of the mother (Nathalie Baye) and the son (Victor Sévaux) are superb. How I wish Nathalie's portrayal was a bit more sympathetic but ----- is just right.

I just hope that I would get a chance to watch another good movie again in this festival.
