In a dystopian near future, single people, according to the laws of The City, are taken to The Hotel, where they are obliged to find a romantic partner in forty-five days or are transformed into beasts and sent off into The Woods.
Amidst a wild flat meadow encircled by an Edenic lush forest, a couple have cocooned themselves in a secluded mansion that was not so long ago burned to the ground, devotedly restored by the supportive wife. Within this safe environment, the once famous middle-aged poet husband is desirous of creating his magnum opus; however, he seems unable to break out of the persistent creative rut that haunts him. Then, unexpectedly, a knock at the door, the sudden arrival of a cryptic late-night visitor and his intrusive wife will stimulate the writer's stagnant imagination. Little by little, much to the perplexed wife's surprise, the more chaos he lets in their haven, the better for his punctured male ego. In the end, will this incremental mess blemish, irreparably, the couple's inviolable sanctuary?Written by

When the Michelle Pfeiffer's character burns her hand on the skillet, her husband tells "Mother" to get some ice. As a medical doctor (he said earlier that he is a surgeon) he would know that applying ice to a burn can further damage the tissue. It would have been better to run her hand under cold water.

All you can say after the movie ends is nothing!
Mother! is a cinematic masterpiece that examines the universe from the beginning."Mother!" Is a strange masterpiece.Not only because it can show neither a multi-layered story but a double-sided storyline.Not only because of its unsurpassed spaces.Not only because Darren Arnofsky has come to a new point in his filmmaking history.We're talking about someone who made a crazy movie with madness."Mother!" is something beyond such descriptions.
"Mother!" is a great storyteller than a cinematic movie.So consider this movie more than a movie, as something that shows, cinema can say whatever it wants.
