魁北克千禧之後頭角崢嶸、憑此作在康城一舉成名之薩維杜蘭在二十歲自編自導自演的首部自傳體作品,訴說一段如同自虐式愛戀的母子關係。杜蘭以自身的成長經驗出演,沒有誰會比他更了解自己的影子。十六歲的Hubert全身充滿青春狂暴的因子,與母親同住一室,天天上演困獸鬥。母子之間的愛恨纏鬥絕不輸母女間的情仇折磨。由車廂中爭執開始,生活瑣事把兩人逼至瀕臨崩潰的邊緣。同樣圍繞着母親、兒子、同志與愛的主題,此作比其後幾部作品的動機更直接單純,更不顧形式與世俗。接通現實的自己,對鏡頭流露最真誠的自白,不論是輕狂的怒吼,還是詩化的哀怨,只為記錄與母親關係日漸疏離的罪與痛。母親穿着婚紗逃婚的想像一幕,一個急着要逃去,另一個則拚命把對方拉回來,既愛亦恨,欲斷難斷,沒有人能夠與血脈相連這個事實割裂。

At the age of 20, Quebec’s millennial golden boy Xavier Dolan became an overnight sensation when he debuted at Cannes with this semi-autobiographical film written, directed and acted by himself. At the center of the film is a toxic mother-and-son relationship between volatile 16-year-old Hubert and the divorced Chantale. As tension and animosity build up, their lives become increasingly miserable. During car ride on the way to school, a seemingly minor argument pushes them to the breaking point. Compared to his latter films that have also dealt with themes such maternal bond and homosexuality, his debut thrives in directness and simplicity. Its disregard for form and social norms allows the filmmaker to reveal his innermost self. Whether it is the raucous screaming matches or their poetic melancholia, the film serves as a chronicle for the agony of a mother and child drifting apart. In Hubert’s imagination, his mother is running away in a wedding dress as he goes after her in a forest. One pulls while the other pushes—a perfectly melodramatic representation of this love-hate relationship.
