A darkness swirls at the center of a world-renowned dance company, one that will engulf the artistic director, an ambitious young dancer, and a grieving psychotherapist. Some will succumb to the nightmare. Others will finally wake up.
Chloë Grace Moretz,
Amidst a wild flat meadow encircled by an Edenic lush forest, a couple have cocooned themselves in a secluded mansion that was not so long ago burned to the ground, devotedly restored by the supportive wife. Within this safe environment, the once famous middle-aged poet husband is desirous of creating his magnum opus; however, he seems unable to break out of the persistent creative rut that haunts him. Then, unexpectedly, a knock at the door, the sudden arrival of a cryptic late-night visitor and his intrusive wife will stimulate the writer's stagnant imagination. Little by little, much to the perplexed wife's surprise, the more chaos he lets in their haven, the better for his punctured male ego. In the end, will this incremental mess blemish, irreparably, the couple's inviolable sanctuary?Written by
There is a recurring theme of yellow fluids through the film. Mother repeatedly drinks an unnamed yellow medicine. She paints the walls with yellow paint. Woman makes a big fuss about her lemonade, and leaves yellow lemons lying around the kitchen. And there are several scenes evoking urine, with characters either using the toilet or wetting themselves. See more »
When Mother breastfeeds her baby, during one shot, she has a scar on her forehead. During the next shot, there is not a blemish on her face. See more »
All you can say after the movie ends is nothing!
Mother! is a cinematic masterpiece that examines the universe from the beginning."Mother!" Is a strange masterpiece.Not only because it can show neither a multi-layered story but a double-sided storyline.Not only because of its unsurpassed spaces.Not only because Darren Arnofsky has come to a new point in his filmmaking history.We're talking about someone who made a crazy movie with madness."Mother!" is something beyond such descriptions.
"Mother!" is a great storyteller than a cinematic movie.So consider this movie more than a movie, as something that shows, cinema can say whatever it wants.
