althea !!’s review published on Letterboxd:
i teared up a couple times midway through, and then i let myself sob completely towards the end.
i liked how the burden of motherhood was portrayed in this movie. we are all outsiders to a mother’s struggle in having to understand a child’s every need, until we experience it for ourselves. then the heartwarming yet intimidating idea that a child might not remember most of their younger days when they grow up.
but they will remember what their mother has done for, with, and around them… because when you’re a child, there is only one way to define a mother. through your own.
i hope i remember the good things from my parents in the future, and i hope they remind me of them.
