Storyline

Petter har nettopp avbrutt sine studier. Han har brutt med sin forlovede for å vende tilbake til hjemmbyen og til sin mor, som bor alene etter sinmors død. Ved Petters hjemkomst forstår vi at moren ikke har noe imot at han har brutt over tvert for å vende tilbake til hjemmet. Den innflytelse som moren har hatt over Petter i barnårene, gir seg nå uttrykk i en sterk morsbinding hos gutten. Når moren igjen har han hos seg, tilspisses situasjonen når hun får greie på at han har innledet et nytt forhold til en annen kvinne i byen. Vi forstår etterhvert at moren vil ha ham for seg selv - på alle måter. Written by Anonymous

Everybody loves their mother, but some goes beyond love . . .
2 April 2003 | by kkrogstadSee all my reviews

Petter (Svein Sturla Hungnes) quits his studies, and break up with his girlfriend. He moves back to his homeplace, to his mother (Bente Børsum) who lives alone. There has always been a good relationship between Petter and his mother, and she doesn`t mind that he moves back home. When Petter finds a new girl at his homeplace, his mother reacts in a negative way.

This film is based on Knut Faldbakkens book "Sin Mors Hus" ("His Mothers House"), and was feared by the people in the filmbusiness in Norway due to its strong sexual content. Still it became a huge sucess at the theatres. It`s today known as one of Norways strangest films of the 70`.
