Ma Mere


If it's an unflinching study of sexual transgression starring Isabelle Huppert you're after, check out Michael Haneke's The Piano Teacher rather than this languid adap of French provocateur George Bataille's novel. It's centred on the ripe Oedipal tension between Huppert and teenage son Louis Garrel, but is so far removed from anyone's inner state that you'll be at best bemused and at worst bored stiff. Lots of nice beachscapes, though.
