Mothers
30 October 2010 | by (macedonia) – See all my reviews

Again three stories in one film in his fourth work-Mothers.It seems, this is the Mancevski s' favorite still of making films. Two fiction stories and the one documentary is the basic plot in the "Mother" The film starts with two girls making up a version of reporting a flasher,a plot of their evil imagination,whоse behavior appear to had learned by the environment or by their mothers perhaps...innocent person is accused! The second stories is about young filmmakers traveling around magnificent but abounded villages making a documentary about people living there. And eventually,the third story is а documentary about serial killer and the tragic events in the small provincial town,with the authentic people involved into. Everybody who saw his previous films are informed about his taste and willingness to make the audience confused and meant.The circle of the events in the film and the final point. -The first story about falsely accused man suggest that, maybe the sane events happen in the third story only this time the circumstances are different and the crime is real. -Milcho Manchecski knows Macedonian mentality perfectly well, particularly well expressed in "Before the rain" and "Shadows",in this case very good described in the second story and maybe, when i think a little bit more, even in the first story the things are happening. -Eventually,the loneliness, the worst enemy of human kin is the subject of "Mothers".The real killer and spiritual enemy that particularly came in Macedonia along with transition. Although Manchevski claims that his still of narration is more Еuropеan then American,i am sure after all his works his film language is typical American.But this is not important,what important is that he really trying do something here and he is not bad. After "Shadows" this film of his is the real relief. "Dust" is not the bad movie but is kin of too much. "Before the rain" according to me is the one of the most significant films made in the 90-is along with few others foreign films and most definitеly one of my top ten films ever. Mothers-worth watching!
