A MAN, HIS LOVER, AND HIS MOTHER (15) 2013 SWITZERLAND GISLER, MARCEL IN GERMAN £15.99
Gay writer Lorenz returns to home town in Switzerland to deal with his writer’s block. However back home he has to deal with his elderly fun loving mother , Rosie, in this heart-warmingly film.
Rosie, is growing unable to live without help. She is an infuriating but blisteringly honest individual (beautifully played by veteran Sibylle Brunner) who refuses to accept a life without cigarettes and alcohol. Mario, son of an old family friend, reveals himself to be a fan of Lorenz and his devotion becomes an issue. Lorenz’s sister is fed up with looking after their mother and some family skeletons are revealed. With Mario helping to look after Rosie, all the problems seem to be meshing together, making resolution ever more difficult. Refreshing and authentic.
