The word “gold” springs to mind when watching this little gem from filmmaker Duncan Cowles. As he works in his bedroom, age 21, with a cup of tea, probably early afternoon, his Mother repeatedly disturbs him with a perpetual one-way discussion about a lamp. She has no idea she’s being filmed, and actually at the time, neither did Duncan.
Aside from being utterly hilarious, perhaps because of its simple and pure nature, it’s also a rather touching portrayal of a banal, Mother and child moment that most of us have probably been through at some stage or another. “It’s very much a snapshot of what the relationship between my Mother and I is like.” Duncan says. “It certainly at least shows some of the downsides to living at home when you’re 21.”
