Don’t Call Me Son (Mãe Só Há Uma)

Sunday, July 16 @ 4:45 pm - 6:30 pm


Directed by Anna Muylaert
82 min | 2017 | Brazil | Not Rated
Presented in Portuguese with English subtitles.

Tall, dark, and androgynously handsome, Pierre wears eyeliner and a black lace g-string as he has sex with both boys and girls. The confusion only gets deeper when the teenager’s single, working-class mom is arrested for having stolen him (and his “sister”) at birth. Thanks to the wonders of DNA, he’s returned to his biological parents: bourgeois, straight-laced, and thrilled to have him back—at least until he shows up in a zebra-print minidress.

Writer/director Anna Muylaert, whose earlier film, The Second Mother, also dealt with familial loyalty and class tensions, plumbs the turmoil of adolescence with wit and compassion in Don’t Call Me Son. Actress Dani Nefussi gives completely believable, knock-out performances as both mothers, and newcomer Naomi Nero defies expectations as a broodingly intense, potentially volcanic six-footer in stiletto heels.

— Karen Cooper, Director of the Film Forum
