  誰說「世上只有媽媽好,有媽的孩子像個寶」?相信磯村家的五個小孩會第一個投反對票。為了專心照料因意外導致全身癱瘓的丈夫,磯村家的母親不惜與子女斷絕一切關係。雖然三壑ㄦT,小孩自此卻成無主孤兒,咬緊牙關自立去。十五年過去,孩子嫁的嫁,娶的娶,正當最小的一個亦披上嫁衣,五小褔漸漸體會到母親的無私及偉大。《母親》從孩子的角度出發,娓娓道出母親作為妻子從一而終的執著,揚揚歌頌其無怨無悔的犧牲。

  From the point-of-view of the children, "Mother" tells the story of the most unappreciated, loving and giving mother, who would sacrifice her own life, and sometimes the life of others, for her loved ones. In the autumn of 1955, a family of five children is living in the Tohoku area. In order to take care of her paralysed husband, the mother has to sacrifice her five children by giving them away. The children has to suffer all the loneliness and hardships that this decision has brought them. 15 years have passed, all five of them have got married. Now, they come to understand that their mother's love for them was the greatest love of all.

What real love is all about Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
"Mother" is an interesting film about a love that gives and gives without expecting anything in return. The film centers on a rural family in which a mother cares unselfishly for her several children and husband. The family is turned upside down when the father becomes a paraplegic after suffering a spinal injury.

In order to be able to care full-time for her helpless husband, the mother tells her small children that they must behave as if they don't have a mother and must raise themselves. As we skip forward to see the children now entering adulthood, we see that the mother's behavior has been the ultimate act of love for her children as they now care as unselfishly for each other as she does for her husband.

Yes, this is a very sentimental movie, but it holds some important lessons for us all. Recommended.
