Description of Mother’s House: As with Louis Malle’s Murmur of the Heart, Per Blom was warned not to make this film with a strong sexual content focusing on the incestuous relationship between a college teen and his mother. Yet, also as with Murmur of The Heart, the film proved to be a huge success. Based on Knut Faldbakkens’ book Sin Mors Hus, we follow a young college student (Svein Sturla Hungnes) who after giving school and his fiancee the finger, returns home. In route, he meets a pretty girl and falls in love, much to his mother’s discontent. How might their obvious incestuous interests in each other play out?
