Mother Daughter Reunion
Look at Us Now, Mother!
Review by Ross Anthony

What an engaging piece of humanity on film! Yeah, sure, lots of the footage is on low resolution formats, and yes, the camera work is often shaky; but the life moments captured shine right through. It's visually un-cinematic, but emotionally gripping, vulnerable and sincere. Viewers will appreciate the willingness of the filmmaker to play subject. One wouldn't blame her if she did so in a protected manner, but she seems to let herself be open and vulnerable just as much as her mother and brothers.

The production blends a necessary sense of humor, a strong sense of survival, with an expression of the universal need to be loved. I laughed, I cried, I rooted for this mother and daughter to deepen their connection. Paced very well, it has only a 30 second lull as we fly to France, other than that -- I was engaged completely.
