Plot – Spoilers:
A family living out in the middle of nowhere are mostly quiet like their surroundings. Mother who used to be surgeon in Portugal sometimes breaks the silence regaling her daughter Francisca with folk tales and teaching her some of her surgical skills. Though Father is distant, Francisca is often comforted watching television in his presence. The telly is like a voice-over, often echoing their thoughts. Things begin to move when the family’s quiet life is disrupted by the arrival of a man, who at first glance appears to be a salesman or at worst, an evangelist.

The Eyes of My Mother has great style and lighting that summons the works of some of the masters of European Cinema. It also has one of the best examples of passionate, erotic stabbing.

    I don’t understand why people on here gave it good reviews? The story was lame, the main girl was so unlikable. I just didn’t get the point? 2/5

      I’ve noticed a certain consistency in your comments, Sara… “I don’t understand…” I’m thinking… just going out on a limb here… that perhaps you’re not exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer and most of these movies simply go right over your head… because… as you have said repeatedly… you don’t understand… But, I guess the world needs dish washers too.

    Loneliness is perhaps the most potent of human emotions. It can drive some stark-raving mad…make others commit unspeakable acts of violence… all in the name of having someone to share little slices of our lives with. Nicolas Pesce does a masterful job of showing us exactly this.

    And yet another 5* flick from the masters at EUM…. Goddamn, you guys are good!

      Jealousy is probably more potent

    I thought this was awesome,a creepy & Unnerving flick,very well shot & when films use black & white correctly & for the right subject matter it truly just gives it that extra foreboding & grim feeling,a reason why I thought human centipede 2 was so effective

    Fantastic movie, very unsettling, beautifully shot and acted. Not much gore, it was more implied but it did not matter, it wasnt about blood and guts, it was more about loneliness and what it does to ones mind. Agree with above comment about being shot in black and white which gave it a more grim and gritty feel. And who was that actress, she was gorgeous imo. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

    SPOILER ALERT MAYBE: It’s real good when it’s for revenge but really sad when it turns into stealing babies.

    superb film, thrilling from start to finish, also really enjoyed the fact that the film is in black and white, really emphasises Franciscas dark nature.
    even though its barely 75mins in length, this one will stay with you for a long time.
