Audience Reviews for In Mom's Head (La tête de maman)

  • Sep 10, 2011
    A sinful and seductive scheme to claim the once lost first love and right to happiness, In Mom's Head is a quirky, passive-aggressive, and energetic narrative that values reality over fantasy. Radiant.

    This French film brings us wonderfully crafted story of a young girl and her determination to discover the truth behind her mother's enduring depression and illness. I'll have to mention right at the beginning Karin Viard exceptional role where she plays the inexplicably complicated character Juliette who's only passion seems to be the goings on of her own intestines, a symptom of her mysterious illness. In Mum's Head, a charming cameo from singer and actress Jane Birkin as the mother of Lulu's fantasies is followed by graphic daydream sequences as Lulu hypothesises...what's in mum's head? Imagine fifteen-year-old Lulu who wonders why her mother Juliette sits on a bench outside their country house and stares into space day after day seemingly without a passion for life... and after that imagine her finding a picture of her mother young, topless and radiant, which is a world apart from her mother's current sad facade. Later, snooping around she reveals a hidden Super 8 tape which shows her mum frolicking care free with a handsome young man. Lulu believes if she can find the man in the tape it might help her mum find closure and happiness as she is convince her mum's true love got away... If you have a chance to ever see this real art work of Carine Tardieu from the official selection of the Cannes festival, just do it - and enjoy it in full!
