Every social group is reduced to the crudest cliché.

Moving seamlessly between stage and screen enactments, Guillaume, who plays both himself and his neurotic, chain-smoking mum, concocts plenty of blackly comic moments.

New Zealand Herald

Funny, thoughtful and bubbling over with feeling, the feature shines brightest and rings truest when its driving force is at his best -- which, thankfully, is most of its brief running time.

Any self-pity is outweighed by a healthy dose of self-deprecating humour.

FILMINK (Australia)

Quirky, yes, but perhaps not as commercially approachable as it was in France, where screen culture is more adventurous and experimentation is welcomed

Urban Cinefile

Family relationships and sexuality are the main focus of this quirky, funny and revealing film whose journey culminates in a flourish of emotional ballast

Audience Reviews for Me, Myself and Mum

I had known about this movie since it won big at the Cesar awards. So I was expecting it to be good, yet I wasn't sure what to expect from the story. And I did like it, Guillaume's performance was really good in his dual roles, and the story was also very touching and more complex than you would expect. Although I still have to process it more thoroughly, it was overall a good dramedy, that although maybe because of its context it became so popular in France, I still felt like it was missing something to be more than a good movie. Still I would recommend it, and Guillaume's sure demonstrates a lot of talent in front and behind the camera. ~August 19, 2016~

Gallienne is downright amazing playing two roles in this delicate autobiographical comedy - an expertly-edited film that finds a perfect balance of tone as it moves effortlessly from hilarious to touching moments without ever becoming heavy-handed.

The fresh big winner of César 2014 (winning 5 Césars- Best Film, Best Actor, Best First Film, Best Adaptated Screenplay & Best Editing, out of the 10 nominations), in addition to the triumph in local box office. The film is not as crazy as seen in the trailer, which is indeed a bitter-sweet autobiographical story/narrative. The film doesn't sound really amusing to me, although Guillaume Gallienne is undoubtedly wonderful in disguise playing the mother's role as well.
