Audience Member Sébastien Rose est un des plus talentueux réalisateur Québécois peu connu.... Son premier film est un véritable délice. La performance de Micheline Lanctôt à elle seule vaut le détour... Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Tout film avec Paul Ahmarani est certainement un bon film... euh... quoique j'ai pas bin bin aimé Congorama... mais bon! :P Parraît que c'était bien comme film. Pour revenir au sujet... Ce film est à voir! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member <div align=center><b>COMMENT MA MÈRE ACCOUCHA DE MOI DURANT SA MÉNOPAUSE (2003) directed by Sébastien Rose starring Paul Ahmarani, Micheline Lanctôt, Lucie Laurier</b></div><p><div align=justify>Pretentious, erotic, uneven, its definately French-Canadian, well its everything French-Canadian cinema used to be like, but it was made in the years 2000.<p><i>Comment ma mère...</i> or <i>How my Mother Gave Birth to me During Menopause</i> is about a 30-something writing a thesis about men's obssession with women. His problem was to grow up in a world of women, raised by his mom and his sister and became the perfect lover. He cant help but have sex with every women he meets, until Cassandre comes into his life, he falls in love with her. Obviously, his mom, a very unlikeable, snobish and annoying character will not like the new young lady, until she gets pregnant and our hero feels the need to run away, just like his father did when he was a kid.<p>Sébastien Rose is a writing teacher's son, must be why his films sounds like it came right out of the 80's. He might even be Denys Arcand's spiritual son, his second feature <i>La vie avec mon père</i>, realesed two years after this one, will prove it. His dialogues are very reminescent of Arcand and even the themes, in some way. Like Arcand, Rose give a lighter tone to his film with a lot of comedic moment and even some hilarious scenes. Still, he is a first-time director and the flaws are bold and annoying.<p>The acting is pretty good. Paul Ahmarani, with all his charisma, manages to make his character ambiguous even when we dont agree with his way of thinking or his actions, probably cause we know its a direct consequences of being raised by his bitch mother. Micheline Lanctôt is the mom in question. Weird casting Id say, she is good, but with her manly voice I never managed to understand how it was possible to portray her as a sexy character. Sylvie Moreau as the sister is amazing as usual. Lucie Laurier looks good in a thong and Patrick Huard does a good Patrick Huard job.<p>With so much ambitions for a first film we cant call <i>Comment ma mère ...</i> a failure even when some scenes dont work at all, cause its kind of well-written and never loses its point. The final scene actually make up for all the flaws, very well-acted and fun as well. Its actually a pretty good film, but Im sure Sébastien Rose can do much better, well he has done it already.</div> Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Excellent! Sur les relations abusives mere-fils et le feminisme. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Marrant ! Avec en prime un personnage complètement folle incarné par une Micheline Lanctôt en feu !!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Ma réplique préférée de Micheline Lanctôt : "Je m'en colisse!!" Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
