2022 Cannes Critics’ Panel: Day 11 – Léonor Serraille’s Mother and Son (Un petit frère)

And the last film in competition is another sophomore feature film. Léonor Serraille of course won the Camera d’Or for Jeune Femme (aka Montparnasse Bienvenüe) — that film premiered in the Un Certain Regard section. Mother and Son (Un petit frère) stars Annabelle Lengronne in the lead matriarch flawed role. Hélène Louvart was the cinematographer on the film.

Set over the course of decades, we see two brothers grow up under a mother who doesn’t really have her act together — it leads them to different settings and dwellings – the result: adult children who have their own issues.

As expected, some of our jury folk made their way back home and so with thirteen votes in we’re looking at another 2.8 grade average.
