Storyline

Suddenly, the successful forty-year-old architect, Stéphanie, finds herself without a job after a botched business deal. As a result, caught between a rock and a hard place, the penniless and recently divorced single mother has no other choice but to move in with her widowed sexagenarian mother, Jacqueline, who, thankfully, welcomes her back with open arms. Now, as Stéphanie starts looking for a new job, in the meantime, both women have to become accustomed to the current conditions to make things work out. However, Jacqueline has to make an important announcement. What are her secret plans for the future? Written by Nick Riganas

A nice comedy roller coaster...
30 May 2016 | by bavan-11147See all my reviews

Retour chez ma mère is the exact portray of a jobless person returning to her mother's. The film was clear, clean and clever. The director handled each and every character with heart and passion. I believe these kind of films will definitely knock the box-office because of his own sense of humor. The mother's role was very strong and she has done it very cleverly. I appreciate also the editor and cameraman of the film because you fall into the film without knowing. And that's the best of a film.

It's very rare to see a film like this...

9/10 with heart!!!!!
