Techine has made a beautiful film about lost childhood,the passing time
and old age.Ma Saison preferee succeeds as it evokes situations which
each one of us have experienced in our lives.It is primarily a film
about the complex relationship a mother has with her children. Berthe
does not want her children to worry about her as she is aware of the
fact that no one cares about her.Her illness facilitates a true meeting
between all family members.Berthe is resolute enough to realize that
she has to get ahead in life on her own terms as no one is bothered
about her welfare.Ma Saison preferee is a slice of life as witnessed in
present day France.The film is divided into episodes each dealing with
events related to the family.The film is about difficult life old
people are forced to lead when their children start ignoring them.Ma
Saison preferee is as simple and straightforward as flowing water.This
has been Techine's most remarkable film about family life after
Souvenirs d'en France.
