The narrartive shifts between her different states of consciousness— reveries and reminiscences. Her life, her mother and her movie may be falling apart, but Margherita holds on, reaching out to the past and the present.Acclaimed Italian auteur Nanni Morett ispeaks to the poignancy of human transience, how we process loss and how we gain strength through humor. 2016, France/Italy, 107 minutes, in English and Italian with subtitles, rated R

“Love, death, cinema — they’re all there in Mia Madre, bumping up against one another beautifully.” A NYT Critics’ Pick – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

“An emotionally satisfying fusion of the mixed up and the magical.”
– John Anderson, Wall Street Journal

“With an unassuming directness, Moretti. . . toggles between work and life pressures in a way that finds the curious feelings and epiphanies that bind the two, and somehow give meaning to the whole dance.” – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times

Mia Madre may be a delicate film, but don’t be surprised if, in the end, the cumulative power of its humanity obliterates you.” – Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice
