Its only the end of the worldAfter 12 years away, Louis (Gaspard Ulliel), 34, a writer with a terminal illness, goes back to his hometown with the intention that he's going to tell his family he's dying.

His younger sister Suzanne (Léa Seydoux) was only 10 when he left and she's ecstatic to see him. His mother Martine (Nathalie Baye) is also thrilled, but his older brother Antoine (Vincent Cassel) is angry with Louis and constantly starts arguments. Although Antoine's wife Catherine (Marion Cotillard) seems sweet, she's also totally dominated by her husband.

As the afternoon goes on, Louis tries to connect with his family to tell them his news, but it becomes harder and harder to find an opportune time.

IMDB User review

Its only the end of the worldMost of the critics did not like this movie. Their argument was that it had a great and promising cast, but that the combination didn't add up to much.. a disappointment they said. Well, I do not agree at all. And after having seen "Mommy" I was convinced that the director couldn't have spoiled things going forward.. if anything, he was even getting better. This is one of those movies that whispers something to you without you even knowing. A whisper about a dysfunctional family, wrong timing, memories trapped halfway between your throat and your mouth.. Words left unsaid, and meanwhile, everyone eats, everyone smokes, lunch and dessert.. white wine Not red. Old Home and the new.. An airport, a cup of coffee and a magazine. A song, a dance while the protagonist is standing outside looking inside himself while everyone is looking at him and staring, wondering why is he here and trying to read what he hasn't even written yet.. They are all wondering whether he has the right to show up just like that after 12 years away from them. But isn't he the writer after all, the one with the burden..  and the one with the choice? Should he or should he not? say something.. and why can't he leave just like he entered ...without disturbing the order of things. If only there was someone in the crowd who is able to understand his whisper, his slow gestures and his silent scream that keeps reverberating inside.. and time strikes again and again. someone lifts him up under a gigantic blue sky. "Let's go for a drive". A drive down memory lane, a drive inside a family's heart, mind and soul. A highly emotional and daring movie, tensed, real, so real that it will take your breath away more than once. Highly recommended for its authenticity, great cast, pace, music, cinematography and the well deserved Jury Prize in Cannes 2016.
