Milcho at the top of his game
18 November 2010 | by See all my reviews

"Mothers", Manchevski's fourth movie, is a three-part movie which grabs your attention from the beginning till the end, slowly building the tension which culminates in the last, third part. Although the director uses experimental approach here by mixing two fictional parts with one documentary, it doesn't feel too artsy or too "weird" at all, it's just an interesting collage of three stories that connect only thematically with each other. Raw documentary-like approach to the cinematography as it is needed here and it looks beautiful. The music is very emotional - old folk songs from this part of the world in a new arrangements that feel great mixed with the visuals. Artist like Milcho would never give you everything on plate, he wants us to be a part of the whole experience that this movie offers to us with our interpretations of the messages the author is serving using his writing and visual skills. After credits roll by it will make you think about many issues and questions Milcho raises with his latest offering like the truth and the nature of truth and how mothers are connected to the story in these three parts. Be sure you wont be able to easy forget what you see here, especially that last documentary part about the serial killer and his victims which is masterfully done.
