In an act of extreme fidelity to his own work and also his life partner, Straub decided to shoot a new dialogue inside his extraordinary saga dedicated to Cesare Pavese’s Dialoghi con Leucò (1947), in which a goddess helps a recently dead hunter to understand the relationship that connected him with her mother. Grave, classically inspired and modernly formulated, La madre is made of the same dialogue, repeated three times –three short films that are almost identical but feature subtle variations where we can find the depth those words demand.
