Eyes Of My Mother
B+ Sound: B+ Extras: C+ Film: B
and well crafted, The
Eyes of My Mother
(2016) is the debut film from Nicolas Pesce and is an effective black
and white thriller that I would recommend to fans of films like The
or Lars Von Trier films as it captures a similar dark tone. This is
a serial killer unlike any that you've seen before and is startlingly
realistic with solid special effects and performances.
through the eyes of a little girl named Francisca, the film centers
around a Mother and Daughter who get an unexpected visitor at their
front door one day that savagely murders the Mother. Instead of
reacting in panic and fright like most children would, Francisca has
a profound background in anatomy and has become unfazed by death. As
the girl blossoms into a woman, her bond with her late Mother remains
strong as she becomes a dark force that you don't want to mess
with... her only weakness being her own loneliness.
film stars Diana Agostini, Olivia Bond, Will Brill, Joey
Curtis-Green, and Flora Diaz.
in 1080p high definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 2.39:1,
the black and white presentation of the film is sharp and consistent
throughout with crushed blacks and equally balanced whites and grays.
The sound mix is effective with a lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio)
5.1 mix in English and Portuguese that has clean dialogue throughout
and an ominous and disturbing score. The foreign language bits are
accompanied by English Subtitles. No digital copy.
