The Eyes of My Mother
Directed by Nicolas Pesce
Francisca has been unfazed by death from an early age. Her mother, formerly a surgeon in Portugal, imbued her with a thorough understanding of anatomy and the end of life. But when tragedy shatters her family’s idyllic existence in the countryside, the deep trauma she experiences awakens some unique curiosities. As Francisca grows up, the effects of her troubled past gradually build and her desire to connect with the world around her takes a distinctly dark form. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE. Contains strong language, violence and gore.
Francisca is unfazed by death, but when tragedy strikes, the trauma awakens some unique curiosities.

people complaining about the film being in back and white, as if the header of the cover screen doesn't depict exactly that... like what are you expecting? also weird to comment when a film isn't in English, either. other than that, the film was definitely good! slow burn as others have stated, though the premise and idea of how trauma, and loss, can affect people is presented in a very unique way in this film. worth the watch.
what garbage did i just watch?... this was black and white, had no story line and literally had no explanation whatsoever.
really enjoyed thanks
a slow burn, maybe a bit too artsy for most but for those who have partaken of the kool-ade it's absolutely brilliant. fascinating look into the development of an individual with rather an odd sense of empathy and/or lack thereof
