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!!!!!
