If You See My Mother
Directed by Nathanaël Guedj
France | 90 minutes | 2020
French with English subtitles
If You See My Mother is a romantic, honest, and touching French comedy — all the kinds of things one wants from a romantic comedy that refuses to be guided by its genre tropes. 30-year-old Max is a single ophthalmologist who appears to be coping with his mother’s death, but internally he still sees her and talks to her. Comforting at first, her constant presence becomes problematic when he meets Ohiana, a psychiatrist with whom he falls in love. What follows is an enchanting comic fantasy marked by outstanding performances and an honest and bittersweet depiction of the dynamics of relationships.
Nathanaël Guedj is a writer and director based in France. He has directed several short films that have received international recognition. If You See My Mother is Nathanaël’s feature film debut.
