Clément Cuyer appreciates all genres, from good hard-hitting horror films to schoolboy comedy. He is an “old man” of AlloCiné, journalist in the editorial staff for more than two passionate decades. “Too old for this bullshit”? Oh never!

On the occasion of Mother’s Day, focus on one of the most famous mothers of the seventh art, the mother of Forrest Gump, with three of her most beautiful quotes.

“Mum always said …” On the occasion of Mother’s Day, we come back to three of the most famous quotes from a cult mom on the big screen, that of Forrest Gump (played by Sally Field). Small simple sentences, which seem like nothing, but which nevertheless exude a lot of humanity …

“Mom always said … Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to stumble upon. “ This cult phrase from Robert Zemeckis’ film (and cinema), uttered by Forrest (Tom Hanks) at the beginning of the film, conveys the idea that existence is full of the unexpected. The hero’s journey to the six Oscars will be the perfect illustration of this.

“My mom says stupidity is only stupid …” This phrase is spoken by Forrest at different times in his life. One way of saying that we must constantly fight intolerance, of which the hero is regularly a victim.

“My mom always used to say miracles happen every day. Some don’t think so, but they do.” After Forrest recalled this maternal sentence to his neighbor on the bench, we discover a flashback where, as a child, he saw a real miracle: that of being able to run when he was disabled. Run, Forrest, run!
