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.

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
You won't be disappointed, worth a go
It is well shot and acted, great atmosphere but it is very arthouse/slow burn - a character piece about relationships not really a horror imo.
Loved this flim. Probably not for everyone but I personally love the slow burns. That being said, this is a very tightly edited film, clocking in at less than an hour and twenty minutes. Well worth your time.
It’s ok but it’s kinda boring
