Guillaume Gallienne the multi award-winning French theatre actor revisits his sexually confused youth in this flamboyant farce which has distinct shades of Pedro Almodovar. Gallienne unpicks his complicated love-hate relationship with his domineering mother who raised him more like a daughter than a son defining him as gay before he was even sure of his own sexuality. Years of therapy insecurity and self-loathing followed. Pointedly theatrical in style and full of strong comic set-pieces Me Myself and Mum is a warm-hearted crowd-pleaser. The 41-year-old Gallienne... plays himself from school-age child to awkward adolescent to young man. He also doubles up in drag to play his own mother looking uncannily like Dustin Hoffman in Tootsie. Among those helping him on the way to self discovery is Diane Kruger’s stern German health-spa nurse. It won in five categories in the French Oscars the Césars including best film and also scored at the box office achieving more than three million admissions. Audiences everywhere have warmed to its charm and shamelessly sentimental allure. [show more]
