Never has a movie made me feel like I was living through the protagonist like Mother did, every emotion mother felt, I was feeling (probably 10X more than her) as well! Michelle Pfeifers character made me want to smash through the TV and rip her fucking head off and then there were all the strangers! My lord when mother was threatening to *spoiler blow up the house, I was shouting in my head "DO IT, DO IT!!!! Burn these fucking cunts to death". Such a strange film

Oh and when Adam and Eve broke the previous heart, it was the original sin when god prevented men from paradise (his study room)

The only human that i know that made earth miserable was a female. Eve ruined everything. Thats why were in this conundrum. Lucifer tempted eve to tempt adam to go against God. Satan lured her with knowledge about science and liberalism. Evil thought eve to rebel against God like lucifer did. Lucifer is into sodomy and rape and same sex relationships. Sodom and gomorrah.

I left this movie feeling *extremely guilty* for how I have been treating *Mother Earth.*
This movie is an Bibical allegory which follows the creation of Earth. The creation of man. The creation of the Jewish Religion. The birth and death of Jesus. The creation of Religion. And so on.
(I've left out a great deal here)
If you don't know your Christian Bible you won't understand this movie.
WARNING ..... on a lot of levels it can be very upsetting essentially if you have anxiety issues.

I didn't think she was the biblical ideal mother. I actually thought she was the essence of mother earth. After all, the house is where everthing happens, where the people multiply and do horrible things, the more they get the more horrible it becomes. I can't really relate to the baby being Jesus, I would rather think of it as the very most mother earth can give to us, she gives us her house to destroy, but the baby is more than just that. It so cruelly represents how recklessly we treat the gifts of mother nature, tear it apart and consume it. If I was mother nature I would totally burn the house and kill us all.

God created the Earth before man came into existence. She was God's first true love until the humans came. There's so much foreshadowing hidden in the dialogue and setting. The yellow underwear, the yellow birth control, the yellow drink, the yellow room, etc. In the Bible, Yellow stands for fire and purification. And at some point Mother jokingly told him she was going to go deal with the apocalypse. It was right in front of our front of her face too. Yet she never realize what was going on. The humans had this indignation in their voice whenever Mother said it was her house. I feel like the house is the Earth and mother is the embodiment of it in human form. God gave humans the Earth and she doesn't appreciate them coming and ruining everything. She was beautiful and so eager to be submissive at the beginning, but by the end it's completely the opposite. Mother is tattered and angry, the humans have taken everything from her. Which is true. We take from the environment and don't give back to it. Instead we fill the land with buildings and invent thingss that pollute the Earth. This is a message for us all. When enough is enough, Mother Nature will strike back.

What I got from the movie: Humans are the reason for the destruction of nature, and God put them on Earth because he wanted to be loved and idolized, yet he never even gave a single thought about the planet itself. God created nature, but he only did so to benefit humans. When humans evolve, like the technological advancements that our society is making, it threatens the complete destruction of life, so nature has to defend itself by wiping the slate clean. That’s what I think will happen to us in the future. We will get to the point that the entire environment is destroyed, and the only option to save the planet is to destroy humanity. An endless cycle. Who know, maybe there were dozens of societies like ours, that had to be destroyed for the same reasons. Yet, God still never ceases to recreate, as if he wants to have full power over nature. Something that I found interesting, was when a person criticized “mother’s” appearance, it signifies the fact that humans forgot the value and beauty that nature possessed centuries ago.

I just finished watching this and I appreciate your video. It made sense after you think of it that way, but seriy, the baby scene fucked me up... I have a young baby and was NOT prepared for the crying, peeing baby and then the murder, dismemberment and cannibalism that followed just kinda put it over the edge. I really didn't think it was going to be that kind of insanity, but if you watch it as a kind of way to describe religion, god, mother nature, etc it's not bad. Marketing it as a horror flicks, not so much. Mind fuck, maybe.

*The movie is an analogy for the dangers of religion.*
Showing in a visual way how the man made Christian God would behave and hes motivation if "paradise" and Earth was a single house. While the human race is the opposition in the movie. Its actually religion that is being criticized. In short, trying to tell the viewer, if they follow a religion, that they are being taken advantage of.

There must be something about the medication she took. That powder she use to mix with water whenever she is in pain. that always turn yellow which also looks like same thing she mix with substance that she paints the wall with.
And how about when one brother killed another, the blood runs from top to down the bulb till the wall after the bulb exploded which leads to discovery of another room.
And where the guy was killed, the blood never leave there even though it was renovated after cleaning it by mother.
A kind of confusing and deep meaning.

You know I just thought about this I agree with you completely that he / him is God and Jennifer Lawrence is Mother Nature and the baby is a representation of Jesus how has followers consumed his flesh and blood while not as literal as this movie States humankind killed Jesus and those who follow him consume his blood and body in the form of the Eucharist and wine. And I feel like mother nature fighting back is going to be an example of our real life world how at one point Mother Nature will give out on us. idk

i really, really like this analysis,
but after i watched the movie, i had my own theory (?) some parts don’t support it, and i’m kind of dumb, i know qwq;

i believe that the man is an actual killer, i don’t know what to say bout the walls and the crazed sociopathic baby eaters, but i believe the end is symbolic, like he actually killed her, and he continues to repeatedly kill more women, at the end seen another woman similar to mother is shown at the end. i believe he kills numbers of women, possibly luring them to fall for him, earning their trust only to slice ‘n dice those biatches,
i don’t have a lot of evidence to support the heart in the walls, and supposedly crazed people, but the man progressively becomes more distant during the movie, maybe to attract mother, to send her into a deeper love so that when he ends her life, she’s willing to do it, she’s willing to give her life up for him just to give him what he wants,

man idk,
that movie was hella good though, i watched it two times, 🔫🐸
10/10 would watch again,

Ok, this might be an unpopular opinion but this guy does not deserve these many views when there are better analysis videos out there. Every video I've seen he will go into mind numbing detail beat by beat, telling the whole plot to the point where you're wondering why you didn't just watch the film again. But then almost completely sidesteps the subtext, barely just barely any analysis, and this supposed to pass as an explanation? You're supposed to EXPLAIN what I just saw, not just repeat what I just saw. In this video he missed HUGE plot points like Adam and Eve, the original sin and being cast out of the garden of even. The same with the flood. You can find way better analysis videos with a fraction of views, I feel bad for the more talented youtubers that aren't getting those eye balls. I feel the same way about his Mandy's "explanation" video. MUCH better videos by Flick Connection and Jay Dyer about that film. For Mother! watch the Screenprism analysis.

I have the feeling that there are more layers than that in this movie, what most caught my attention in the film was the "jealousy" she had of her husband. To the point of her saying "Can't we just live, you and me alone?" Anyway I think you guys are focusing only on the part that he "uses" her love for his own benefit, while forgetting that for most of the film the focus is more on the woman wanting to keep him away from other people. Like when she said "I wasn't enough for you?" But I agree with the part of her beeing deep conected with the house, and all the biblical references. Buy anyway, if what you said is true, would the author imply that Mother Nature is disputing God's love with humans? I personally think this doesn't make much sense, so I believe The real meaning is something more complex than that.

this isn't negative towards god. its negative against humanity. god is loving of humans and forgiving and gracious no matter what. as said in the bible. the husband represents god the creator, was he not all of those things to the strangers? the wife represents mother nature. whos destroyed by man, taken for granted by man. are you saying this is also untrue? god trusted man with his child. and they killed him. is this also fictional in your eyes. these are metaphors. god isn't a shitty husband, that is a very linear simple minded way of thinking
