AUDIENCE SCORE
User Ratings: 7,005
Rating: 2/5 -- [A] Babel-ish drama about the malaises wrought by globalisation, how we're closer than ever, and yet, if I'm not mistaken, farther apart. Unfortunately, you've seen it already. Full Review
Daily Telegraph (UK)
Nov 6, 2010
Rating: 2.5/5 -- The film's depiction of capitalism's erosion of the family unit is so heavy-handed that any emotional or affecting moments are undermined by the transparency of Moodysson's intentions. Full Review
Hot Press
Mar 11, 2016
Rating: 1/5 -- [A] fatuous, self-serving and fantastically dishonest exercise in pseudo-compassion, composed in the supercilious "globalised" style of Alejandro González Iñarritu's 2006 film Babel. Full Review
Guardian

Rating: 2/5 -- There's nothing intrinsically wrong with message movies like this provided the characters feel real (they don't) and it's handled with a light touch (it isn't). Full Review
Daily Mirror (UK)

Rating: 1/5 -- As woolly and elephantine as its title. Full Review

The real trouble with Mammoth is that [Lukas] Moodysson, more practiced in subtlety than he's given credit for, exhibits none here. Full Review

Product Description:

Three years after his "experimental" phase wrapped with the jarring, iconoclastic CONTAINER, Swedish enfant terrible Lukas Moodysson returned for this sprawling, ambitious social drama. Echoing Alejandro González Iñárritu's BABEL and featuring two Hollywood A-listers as his leads, MAMMOTH also marked the director's premier English-language project. Michelle Williams and Gael García Bernal co-star as Ellen and Leo, New York marrieds; she's an emergency-room surgeon, he's a listless, vaguely dissatisfied Internet game designer. They have a family, albeit an unconventional and dysfunctional one: seven-year-old daughter Jackie (Sophie Nyweide) is practically being raised by a 24/7 Filipino caregiver, Gloria (Marife Necesito), who dotes on her incessantly. This provokes the envy of Ellen and the resentment of Gloria's two geographically estranged sons, Manuel (Martin Delos Santos) and Salvador (Jan Nicdao), who repeatedly phone their mom from Manila and plead with her to come home. Gloria's mother grows so distressed by this behavior that she attempts to show Salvador just how easy his life is in comparison to that of others, which leads to unanticipated tragic consequences. Meanwhile, Leo teams up with a shifty associate, Bob (Tom McCarthy), flies to Thailand, and encounters a freewheeling, laid-back working mother named Cookie (Run Srinikornchot). Step by step, the actions that Leo takes while abroad create a domino effect and alter everyone's lives in irreversible ways.
