A young girl organises a picnic for her boyfriend and her mother, which serves as a trigger for her thoughts regarding the relationships she has with them.

What critics say:

„Watching My mother is just one my sensation was exactly like the one I had when watching the famous scene from Un Chien andalou, the film by Dali and Buñuel. Uncomfortable goosebumps mixed with a sort of undefined guilt (for nothing in particular, just omnipresent), which can only confirm Teona Galgoțiu’s visionary and authentic avagardism. Plus the writing, not to mention the writing.” (Alberto Păduraru – Liternet)
