Pierre, a youth, comes from his grandmother's in France to stay with his parents in the Canary Islands. His father talks oddly about his lost youth and leaves abruptly for France. Mom promises to take Pierre to a nightclub, remarking that people will think he's her lover. He prays. His father dies in France, and his mother wants him to empty his father's office; Pierre finds it full of pornography. His mother takes him in tow into a night world without morality, a world of sexual exploitation, exhibitionism, and wildness. What will Pierre make of this, and what, ultimately, will he make of his mother? Written by
Pierre, the Son:
And as they did not like to acknowledge God, God delivered them over to a discerning mind, to do unsuitable things: being filled with all injustice, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, homicidal thoughts, strife, deceit, bad habits; whisperers, revilers, enemies of God. Some who understand the law of God still practice such actions. They are worthy of death. They not only do them, but even commend those who practice them.

Listen up, people, hear ye, hear ye, gather all thee round. Praise be to the most beautiful language in the world. And no, no, it is not French. **** French!
Why is it that when Americans release a film they include 23 soundtracks, including Norwegian and Icelandic? Hell, they are such bleeding hearts they consider the sensibilities of people living in Outer Mongolia. Hell, come the day we can export to Venus we'd have discs featuring Venusuese. Gee whiz yeah, Americans know how to milk 'em for their pesos by givin' 'em what they want.
Ain't nothing wrong with that. Called commerce.
But when the movie is in French, or Italian, or Spanish, no such luck. Why bother to dub into English? Simply slap on some subtitles. And forced ones too, you can't get rid of them.
This MA MERE felt totally alien to me. There is no real viewer connection if you cannot comprehend the words. And yet I could choose to watch many of my favorite American TV shows in a plethora of unlikely languages at the flick of a button.
So, Revolver Entertainment, English box for MA MERE, but no word of warning. I expected what I got, point is, though, many wouldn't have. Here's how to improve your product: include an English soundtrack.
The most beautiful language in the world. Like Liz Hurley said in BEDAZZLED, everyone ought to speak it anyway.
Oh, and the movie is kinda (expletive deleted if I want this accepted by IMDb) but really it sucks (another expletive deleted).. Yes, lots of nudity and pretty nudity that is too.
Movie is nevertheless a load of horse manure.
I do think even IMDb will let me get away with that.
And if not, let them watch this (expletive deleted) themselves in (expletive deleted) French and they will (expletive deleted) concur.
