GREAT ACTING AND EXCELLENT FEMALE CHARACTERS
3 October 2020 | by richardkassirSee all my reviews

An ageing business man (Levien) visits his dying mother and remembers his poor childhood in the early part of the 20th Century. His mother, a massive and difficult personality, ruled the household with outrageous and anarchistic behaviour that occasionally caused her to end up in prison. Levien's quiet father keeps the family together by holding down a factory job. Levien adores his mother and doesn't object to being pulled out of bed in the middle of the night to assist her on some anarchist act of destruction or other. But when he starts a relationship with his estranged aunt in secret, he begins to doubt his mother's actions. This film has faults, but its saving grace is the strong central anti-hero female roles of Levian's mother and aunt, particularly unusual considering when this movie was made.
