I Killed My Mother

J'ai tué ma mère

Hubert Minel is 17 years old and homosexual. He lives with his mother in a suburb of Montreal. He's actually fine. He had a sheltered childhood and now he is together with Antonin. Yet Hubert is becoming increasingly rebellious. He develops a hatred for his mother. He can hardly explain why. He dislikes the way she speaks, how she furnishes their flat, how she half-heartedly responds to his questions. He gets his frustration off his chest in front of his video camera. But Hubert's single mother struggles with her life as well. She takes her son to school by car every day, but she complains he could ride a bike or take the bus. She makes everything herself and complains that Hubert does not help her with their housework. Mother and son argue a lot. And they always find a reason for it. Hubert does not like talking in the car, so he starts a conversation when his mother wants to be undisturbed and watch TV. Hubert does not tell his mother anything about his homosexual boyfriend. She hears it from Antonin’s mother. Hubert wants to live in his own flat and is glad that his mother supports this idea. But the next day she has changed her mind and does not allow it. She thinks he is too young and should be sent to boarding school instead. No wonder Hubert claims at school that his mother has died. But the teacher discovers his lie and takes him to task. All this inspires Hubert to write a school essay entitled: "I killed my mother".
