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.
