“As much as I like combining drama and humor—because life is about the duality of both in all its absurdity—for the same reason I like to write a story with very realistic environments interwoven with more extravagant parentheses and segments,” Xavier Dolan once told me. “It’s important for me to have these situations where things are bigger than nature, bigger than the characters themselves, where you feel overwhelmed by life and it makes us remember how small we are and life itself in the movie reminds the characters of that.” And although Tom at the Farm still doesn’t have US distribution, yesterday, Dolan’s latest feature Mommy premiered at Cannes.
