Overview:


Inspired by true events, I'M GLAD MY MOTHER IS ALIVE was written and directed by father and son filmmaking team Claude ("A Secret") and Nathan Miller. Given up for adoption as a toddler, troubled teenager Thomas (César nominee for Best Male Newcomer Vincent Rottiers in a powerful performance) becomes obsessed with tracking down his birth mother. After years of searching, Thomas finds her (a riveting Sophie Cattani) single, with a small child, living in a nearby suburb, and introduces himself. Traumatized by years of emptiness and longing for his mother, he starts an ambiguous relationship with her - part courtship, part obsession, which slowly drives him to an act of madness.
