The Eyes of My Mother (2016)68K
The Eyes of My Mother: Directed by Nicolas Pesce. With Diana Agostini, Olivia Bond, Will Brill, Joey Curtis-Green. In their secluded farmhouse, a mother (a former surgeon) teaches her daughter, Francisca, anatomy, and how life and death are not to be feared. One afternoon, a mysterious visitor shatters the idyll of their family life, and deeply traumatises Francisca, but also awakening curiosities. Years later, Francisca clings to her increasingly distant father, but the trauma she sustained reawaken when her desire to connect with the world around her takes on a dark form.
“Spellbinding tale of an unwell, isolated young woman who has no idea that sheu0026#39;s unwell. Just a mesmerizing performance by Kika Magalhães in the lead, and shot in exquisite black and white. Itu0026#39;s a very dark, off-putting movie, and itu0026#39;s definitely not for everyone. Director Nicolas Pesce makes great use of the filmu0026#39;s short running time (under 80 minutes) and relatively claustrophobic atmosphere. VERY well done.”
