Synopsis:
Guillaume Gallienne, the multi award-winning French theatre actor, revisits his sexually confused youth in this flamboyant farce, which has distinct shades of Pedro Almodovar. Gallienne unpicks his complicated love-hate relationship with his domineering mother, who raised him more like a daughter than a son, defining him as gay before he was even sure of his own sexuality. Years of therapy, insecurity and self-loathing followed. Pointedly theatrical in style, and full of strong comic set-pieces, 'Me, Myself and Mum' is a warm-hearted crowd-pleaser. The 41-year-old Gallienne plays himself from school-age child to awkward adolescent to young man.
He also doubles up in drag to play his own mother, looking uncannily like Dustin Hoffman in Tootsie. Among those helping him on the way to self discovery is Diane Kruger's stern German health-spa nurse.

I'd recommend it - Me, Myself and Mum review by RL

Funny, moving, thoughtful and entertaining. It's the first thing I've seen by Gallienne and was impressed. Although semi-autobiographical he still had to act and did so very well. I'd certainly recommend it.
