News & Interviews for I Remember Mama
Critic Reviews for I Remember Mama
Producer-Director George Stevens has transferred the John van Druten play, via a free-wheeling script by DeWitt Bodeen, in all its genial personality to the screen.
This chronicle of one immigrants clan in San Francisco circa 1900 is sentimental and nostalgic, but it's precisely directed by George Stevens and emotionally effective.
Audience Reviews for I Remember Mama
don't really get why everyone loves this so much or else it's just far too sentimental for my tastes. the outlandish accents and gushing music put me off right away but i stuck it out for 2+ hours thinking there must be something...give me curtiz' 'life with father' any day
A really great family drama, a wonderful cast, and a good story. I really liked it.
A film along the lines of Pride and Prejudice, but this is a first generation immigrant family with four kids in early 20th century San Francisco. The story teller is the oldest daughter who has a yen for writing. We go through the various troubles they encounter - lack of money, the stay in a hospital when a kid needs an operation, the good and bad relatives, etc.
It is a heart-warming movie, and if you get a chance watch it.
