My Mother is a French-Austrian-Portuguese-Spanish 2004 film about the fictional story of an incestuous relationship between a 17-year-old boy and his attractive, promiscuous, 43-year-old mother. The movie stars Isabelle Huppert, Louis Garrel, Emma de Caunes, Joana Preiss, Philipe Duclos and Jean-Baptiste Montagut. French director Christophe Honoré, who wrote the screenplay, based it on the controversial and posthumous 1966 novel of the same name by French author George Bataille. Honoré shot the film on location on the island of Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, Spain. Its dialogue is almost entirely in French with brief segments in Spanish, German and English. Film distribution company TLA Releasing released Ma mère in France, at the Cannes Film Market, on 13 May 2004. Internet movie site Rotten Tomatoes indicates Ma mère has received mixed but largely negative reviews over time, with an average of 3.7 points out of 10. Of the 40 reviews posted on Rotten Tomatoes, only five are positive. Jonathan Romney associates the film with the New French Extremity.
