Following the death of his mother in '80s Poland, 12-year-old Wojciech has taken the brunt of his stressed father's frustrations with him; the boy frequently gets punished via belt. Wojciech's father occasionally tries to, instead, bond with him, but soon snaps back to his short-fused habits. Apart from Wojciech's friend Bartek, no one does anything to help. Jump to present day, Wojciech is a furrow-browed journalist who spends most of his spare time spelunking alone. Just like his father, he has serious anger management issues. Fellow caver Tania feels inexplicably attracted to him, but the love of a good woman may not be enough.

The dilemma here is wondering whether or not Sam Worthington's character is going to jump or not, and if he is really innocent or not. Elizabeth Banks is also very strong here as the cop who talks down jumpers. An overall great time and a must see for everyone. RECOMMENDED

Highly stylized and visually astute, this movie may slip off the rails but it is often an amazing cinematic experience. The dialogue between mother and rebellious young adult is painfully realistic. It is probably more tied to the director's youth and inexperience that it all ends up being a bit over-wrought. Yet it can be denied that the film's situations would be experienced with a great deal of angst and passion. "I Killed My Mother" is an amazing example of a great film artist in process of mastering his skills. He may over reach and gesture a bit too much, but this is clearly an unrestrained work of a great filmmaker about to happen.

Paul B (nl) wrote: The movie has some good concepts about future potential, however i think twist at the end needed to happen sooner so the audience could become more attached with the impossible decision.
Don A (gb) wrote: Awesome 80's B action with Mr. Van Dammage himself as a slick haired bad guy. Coming out when martial arts was still a relatively mystical art, this movie throws everything in the mix: small town teenage kid (who looks like he's 30) moves to a new town, faces local bully, then faces the evil russian martial arts expert..looses....then gets trained by the ghost of Bruce Lee..ahh the awesome 80's. This even has a killer 80's soundtrack theme. A must see for a guys action night.
