A mother's love ...,
This review is from: Child's Pose [DVD] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Cornelia is one of Romania's elite so when her son is involved in a car accident she uses her power and influence to help him out. This is an emotionally charged film examining the relationship between a mother and her son. She wants to re-exert control over her 30 year old son's life and he is trying to escape from the maternal clutches.
The film sees the point of view of the mother when their child leaves home and they feel a sense of loss thus constantly trying to regain some power over the child - which usually takes the form of critiscism of how he lives his life and, especially, his wife.
Overall this is a very good example of the new Romanian cinema but it does become a little wearing at times and feels slightly overlong.
