mum and dad
Oh. My. Good. Golly. This film is something else - something else I tell you! "A couple's relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence." One thing about this film, is hardly anything gives it away for you. I went into this pretty damn blind and I had a great time!
If you haven'rt already noticed, this is in a folder on this website that is special - yes, I watched it with Mum and Dad. I mentioned it was on Netflix and mum decided on Sunday she would like to watch it, so we did.
I feel we all had the same thought as the credits rolled; whaaaaaaaaaaat?! Obviously, I am not going to say any spoilers because that is just not fun. I will break it down a little though, and just say what helped me enjoy the film even more. I feel I have jumped a little though, I'l go back...
The film as a whole is, in our eyes, very strange. It starts with a fairly normal storyline, a few bits that made you scratch your head, but nothing too confusing. It actually starts as quite a nice film, but you know shit is going to hit the biggest fan, you've, like I had, have heard of this film, and heard how some couldn't even finish this film. You know you're in for a treat. It all goes down the pan when they get a knock at the door... Damn people knocking at your door! Him, no one really has any names in this by the way, I haven't just been lazy and forgotten their names, lets the strange man in, with no discussion with Mother, and all a sudden, more shit and more fans.
Now, I don't want to say too much, as I really feel Mother! is something you need to see for yourself. As far as I can see, the main ideas that we only found out after Googling it, are only revealed when you Google them yourself. No small intros or anything really dig into - so I will not mention any of it.
What I will say though, is don't judge it by the first watch, I thought it was very confusing and mum and dad both hated it, until they had a Google and found out what it really is about. Then, it all made sense, it all made sense, and actually, changed all of our minds. Mother! is an insanely well done film, that has great scenes, a great storyline, great acting and parts of it that will genuinely shock you - but you already knew it had those scenes, didn't you?
Mother! is one of a kind and even though I've been saying about having to Google it, wait to do this, go and watch the film first, and then Google it. Go in with an open mind and do not judge. You will probably be surprised...
Not just there to raise you, also fun to watch scary films with...
