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.
Cast: Kika Magalhaes, Flora Diaz, Will Brill, Clara Wong, Joey Curtis-Green
Stunning film and major achievement for a first feature.
Not a great film to slow and predictable
Not amazing but worth watching if you want something different. A few to many things unanswered for me, although that said I did quite like the film.
