 I also found that this movie

 I also found that this movie was very compelling as a result of Caouette's intriguing film editing.  I also felt like the film was done as though it was all a dream,(maybe more like a horror film) taking the individual through a long and winding road of misery in not being able to find the (their) truth. 

I felt, as  I was watching the film, that Caouette himself sided more with his mother than with his grandmother and grandfather. I think the emotion, that the words he uses within the film to narrate the story, evoke is one of sadness of never being able to fully enjoy childhood with a mother, as a result of one incident that was made worse by his grandparents.
