“I just wanted to shoot portrait aspect ratio that would allow me to be very close to characters, avoid distractions to the left and right of the frame and have the audience look the characters right in the eye. I know a lot of people are saying, ‘Oh, 1:1, how pretentious,’ but for me, it seems a more humble and private format, a little more fitting to these lives we’re diving into.” - Xavier Dolan on Mommy’s aspect ratio.


                            And all the roads we have to walk are winding
                          And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
                      There are many things that I would like to say to you                                                                     but I don’t know how.
