If Mama Ain''t Happy, Nobody''s Happy

Year2014 Duration24 min. DirectorMea de Jong

At the end of this film, there is no moral or happy ending, just reality, pure reality. A mother and her daughter look at themselves in the same mirror: no man has lasted in their lives. And the roles are changed. One of them confesses, followed by the other in a film that includes its making of as part of the contents and turns out to be psychoanalysis about independent women that is not lacking comedy. A big silence. The film looks further back and discovers that the same happened in four generations: in this house, men did not last, they have never lasted. The mother proudly tells the story whilst her daughter has some doubts.
