    Mother & Son First Reactions

    Guy Lodge: I was greatly moved by Leonor Serraille’s quiet, lovely MOTHER AND SON, the last film to screen in this year’s Cannes competition. Expands the palette and worldview of her Camera d’Or-winning debut JEUNE FEMME; keeps her grace and wit.

    Caspar Salmon: Léonor Serraille’s UN PETIT FRÈRE is getting a heck of a reception after its screening, and deservedly so – it’s a really tender family epic, beautifully shot, with real detail in its observation of this Black family in Paris and Rouen. Gorgeous.

    Francesc Vilallonga: The last film seen in Cannes this year is a chronicle of immigration seen through the eyes of a mother and two children. It clearly goes from less to more and points out interesting elements. However, it may not have been a movie to enter the official section.

    Julien Lada: Not really convinced, unfortunately, by Léonor Serraille’s LITTLE BROTHER, a three-part portrait of a family that integrates and falls apart. The dispersion of focus misleads the overall view and the film gradually dries up after a promising first act

    Stephanie Bunbury: A little too often, Mother and Son reads that way, as a dossier of the immigrant experience. That experience is admirably well observed and largely absorbing but it’s a little too much in a small space.

    Robbie Collin: Right at the end, the Cannes comp lobs in another beaut: Léonor Serraille’s Mother and Son, a sparkling family immigrant drama that skews more Steve McQueen than Dardenne, which is more than fine by me.

    Damien Leblanc: Léonor Serraille concludes the competition of Cannes 2022 in style. Recounting the integration of a single-parent family in France at the end of the 20th century through three points of view, the film deploys a poignant narrative breadth and a superb cast.

    Euan Cook: An incredibly profound glance into the lives of Côte d’Ivoire migrants living in Paris. The film’s beating heart stems from the POVs of a fractured, tenable relationship between a mother and her two sons – I cried…

    Fabien Lemercier: Léonor Serraille raises her game with a highly refined second feature following fifteen years in the tumultuous life of a family trio. The film proves the subtle yet mind-blowing skill of Léonor Serraille.

    Juliette Reitzer: Overwhelmed by the romantic and tragic scale of Mother and Son by Léonor Serraille, what a finale! If it’s not on the list, I give my apron back.

    Santiago Varela Antúnez: Mother & Son by Léonor Serraille recounts the evolution of a family from the Ivory Coast upon their arrival in Paris. We watch as the years go by with a changing point of view that divides the film into three parts. Interesting, but not enough for the Official Section.

    20:30 (8:30 PM) GMT+2, Saturday, is when the awards ceremony starts. Unless this year’s jury president don’t tell us right away who the winner is, you should add several minutes to that time hehe

    We are definitely having ties. It was lowkey obvious considering the mess of this years competition.

    I am okay with ties at Cannes because they result in a larger number of films getting highlighted, unless the ties cause the awards to lose some of their prestige.

    Emmy FYC
    -Severance in all categories.
    -Ted Lasso in all categories.
    -The Dropout in all categories.

    -Jennifer Coolidge, Connie Britton, Margaret Qualley, Colin Firth
    -Jung Ho-Yeon, Lee Yoo-Mi, Sarah Snook, Laura Linney.
    -Jean Smart, Kaley Cuoco, Juno Temple, Sarah Lancashire and Martin Short.

    From Kyle Buchanan:

    Cannes gossip: It’ll be a Belgian Palme d’Or, as rumors fly that CLOSE and TORI AND LOKITA are jury faves (and may even share the award). Other films that got the call to come back: DECISION TO LEAVE, BROKER, TRIANGLE OF SADNESS, ARMAGEDDON TIME, EO, 8 MOUNTAINS, BOY FROM HEAVEN

    STARS AT NOON also possibly asked to return as well.
