Atom User Reviews for The Disappearance of My Mother (La scomparsa di mia madre)
Funny and completely original.
I loved the film!
This is a tumultuous muse story in which the artist and his inspiration just happen to be blood relations.
The result of the collaboration between mother and son brings no great epiphanies but it remains a film that both beguiles and unsettles as it salutes a remarkable woman and the enduring demands of ties that bind.
The Disappearance of My Mother is rife with grand philosophical questions about beauty, capitalism, love, life, and death, while still maintaining the intimacy of a family connection.
