Mum’s Wrong

Marc Fitoussi
 
[D]irector Marc Fitoussi delivers another fascinating mother-daughter portrait here that explores female family dynamics against the backdrop of soul-crushing office work. (…) [T]his is yet another solid entry into Fitoussi’s filmography that explores the lives of credible characters in contemporary society with a sense of humanism and bittersweet comedie humaine.
(…)
“[T]hough Anouk might be more intrepid than most of her real-life peers, the film never resorts to this-only-happens-in-the-movies wish fulfillment.
(…)
Dequenne, the Dardenne brothers discovery who gave the performance of lifetime in Joachim Lafosse’s Our Children as a mother driven to killing her own children, impresses here as a mother who has sacrificed everything to make sure her daughter has more than she had but who might have lost more than a part of herself in the process. Her work in especially the last act is again thrilling to behold. Opposite her, the curly-haired cutie Jestin easily holds her own, with the young pro bringing wide-eyed innocence when required but also credible as someone who takes matters into her own hands when she thinks the end justifies the means.
