WALTER PRESENTS: THE OTHER MOTHER (Maman a tort) a twisted French psychological thriller where a young boy claims that his mother isn’t his real mother. Despite being urged by a child psychologist to take up the case, the police face a tough choice; risk allowing the boy to stay with the wrong parents, or trust the word of a child and ruin a family’s life forever?
When three-year-old Malone insists that his mummy is not his mummy, child psychologist Vasile believes him. Police captain Marianne, however, is much more sceptical and is already occupied solving a serious robbery in which millions of euros have been stolen and two fugitives are still at large. But they are running out of time; Malone’s memories are fading fast and if his story is not just child’s play, it would be criminal to ignore it. Can you trust a young child with an overly active imagination? Or could this be a sophisticated case of kidnapping? Forced together by the case, Vasile and Marianne embark on a passionate affair, further complicating the investigation…
