Disturbing, Dark and Cruel Psychological Drama
7 November 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The teenager Megan (Nicole DuPort) is a young woman raised completely isolated and dominated by her deranged and possessive mother, the writer Samantha Fergus (AnnieScott Rogers). Megan lives her life as if it were a fairy tale and without sense of reality, having her education through home schooling with private teachers. When her hormones change her behavior, inclusive with sexuality arisen, she does not have any support from her mother, and she creates an imaginary friend to satisfy her repressed desires and leading mother and daughter to a tragedy.

"Sonata" is a disturbing, dark and cruel psychological drama, showing the sick relationship of mother and her daughter. The movie is not bad, but the viewer is misguided by the distributor that sells this heavy drama as if it were a horror movie, with a typical cover inducing to a horror movie and certainly disappointing the fans of this genre. Therefore, the target audience is absolutely deceived. Nicole DuPort is perfect in the role of a repressed young woman finding sexuality without any orientation or support. AnnieScott Rogers in some moments exaggerates, but also has a good performance. The introduction of this film, with Ludwig van Beethoven's Sonata no. 14 ("Moonlight"), gives a touch of class to this good movie. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Gritos de Horror" ("Screams of Horror")
