You Are Not My Mother

You Are Not My Mother ★★★½

For some reason, since late 2019 there has been a strange wave of films focused on the horrific side of mother-daughter relationships or on the eerie consequences of motherhood, even considering "Mother Nature" in her stance as a maternal figure. This chilling and nightmarish film by Kate Dolan is the prime example of how this... sub-genre... deliver the goods when we care about the characters, we understand the metaphors and we can relate -in some way or another- to the horrifying situations. This was so creepy!
