Me, Myself and Mum

Thespian Guillaume Gallienne (a member of France's prestigious state theatre, Comédie-Française) adapts his own one-man show in this flamboyant comedy confessional. He explores his upbringing, his relationship with his mother (also played by Gallienne, in drag), and the eventual embracing of his inner heterosexual after he was raised like a daughter and assumed gay. Winner of the "Art Cinema Award" (C.I.C.A.E. Award) at Cannes 2013.

Comedy, it’s a funny thing. It tickles you, or it doesn’t. Whether you still find Woody Allen funny, or think Adam Sandler’s the bomb, funny is about as subjective as choosing your favourite chocolate in the box. Hell, somebody must like Turkish delight…

Offers a playful twist on the typical coming-out narrative, in which an effeminate young man is the last to realize what everyone around him has already decided.

A cheerful and inventive comic confessional about Gallienne’s upbringing and his relations with his mother.

A light-hearted film with no interest in giving weight to the judgement Guillaume faces for his antics.
