The Eyes of My Mother

Movie

In their secluded farmhouse, a mother, formerly a surgeon in Portugal, teaches her daughter, Francisca, to understand anatomy and be unfazed by death. One afternoon, a mysterious visitor horrifyingly shatters the idyll of Francisca's family life, deeply traumatizing the young girl, but also awakening some unique curiosities. Though she clings to her increasingly reticent father, Francisca's loneliness and scarred nature converge years later when her longing to connect with the world around her takes on a distinctly dark form.

A Sundance Next standout, Nicolas Pesce's impressive, highly original horror fable is the stuff of very beautiful nightmares.

Unfolding with a minimum of dialogue, Francisca’s maturation from watcher to doer would be laughable if performed with less nuance or photographed with less originality.

Here's a recurring nightmare I've had since seeing Nicolas Pesce's The Eyes of My Mother: I'm parking my car — I don't even have a car — on a desolate street in broad daylight.

Don’t be fooled by the artfulness: The Eyes Of My Mother is deeply fucked up.

The Eyes Of My Mother is a haunting take on being raised around violence and rings a bit louder due to recent current events.
