Synopsis

  • Two nine-year-old girls report a flasher to the police - even though they never saw him. Three filmmakers meet the only residents of a deserted village an elderly brother and sister who have not spoken to each other in 16 years. Retired cleaning women are found raped and strangled in a small town. A reporter who writes about the murders is arrested. The fiction slowly turns into a documentary. Through mothers - dedicated, neglectful, loving, absent, murdered, monstrous - Manchevski renders the many faces of human tragedy and joy. Employing an innovative structure, MOTHERS highlights the delicate relationships of truth and fiction, of drama and documentary, becoming thus a meditation on the nature of truth. By eschewing neat narrative devices, the film pushes the viewer to confront their own definitions of filmic reality, as the structure of the film itself becomes part of its message.
