Full review on Letterboxd: https://letterboxd.com/dylandoorsfan/film/shrews-nest/ 10/10 Whilst Montse is an agoraphobic, co-writer/(with Sofia Cuenca/Angel Amoros and Emma Tusell) co-director Juanfer Andres,and fellow co-director Esteban Roel are joined by cinematographer/co-writer Amoros in taking the horror out of the darkness and into magnificently tailored lighting. Set in the 1950’s, the directors elegantly shine the household in angelic lighting flickering up the meek wallpaper and brightening the dour Gothic dresses Montse wears.
Fantastic film, with a stellar script with Macarena Gomez playing a neurotic and nebbish caregiver with ease.
