All About My Mother

Good characters and well acted, Cecilia Roth is excellent in the lead. The story is moving at times, but so fantastical it's hard to take seriously. The plot felt like a bizarre fairytale that's purposely taboo and extreme. It's a testament to the weight and reality of the characters that is engaging at all.
