Dark Contemporary Irish Folk Horror

You Are Not My Mother: An Irish film steeped in Folklore which also explores the issues of mental illness and bullying. Char (Hazel Doupe) is academically bright but bullied at school, her mother, Angela Carolyn Bracken), who is bipolar disappears. She returns after a few days but will not say where she was, Her behaviour changes, she becomes elated, threatening, violent, even homicidal. Char's grandmother, Rita (Ingrid Craigie) sees this as being due to something other than a manic phase. Throughout the film Rita is seen making amulets constructed of twigs and herbs to ward off evil. In the opening scene she performs a ritual involving Char as a baby. The narrative is unsettling from beginning to end as the sense of dread builds. While most of the horror is psychological there are some unsettling scenes involving creatures from the other realm but unsurprisingly the mundane bullying of char by other teens are perhaps the most disturbing. Great performances by Diupe, Craigie, Bracken and Jordanne Jones as Suzanne, a bully turned friend. Reminiscent (in different ways) of Outcast, The Hole In The Ground and The Wicker Man; even the song Elf Call by Steeleye Span but it's very much it's own film. Written and Directed by Kate Dolan in her triumphant debut as a feature Director. 8/10.

The Supernatural and the Rougher Side of Dublin

Char's mother Angela is acting strange. Angela rarely emerges from the bedroom, has trouble completing routine tasks like getting groceries and driving Char to school, and she is getting worse. The thing is Char really needs her mom right now. She is being bullied at school and needs someone to turn to for support and advice. This is when Angela unexpectedly disappears and then reappears in a hostile mood.

You Are Not My Mother is an intriguing, quirky, and female driven dive into Irish folklore, the supernatural, mental illness, and the rougher side of Dublin. Because of a low film budget there is not a lot of depth to the dialogue or acting, but there are bright spots too like the female focused story and the acting of Hazel Doupe (Char).

World premiere seen at the Toronto international film festival.

Quite boring!

What a movie! Slow progression of the story and predicted end! Worth watching if you're only having nothing else in the earth to do!! You may feel nauseated but not really scared.
