An incursion into the psychic problems of the adolescent Gabriel who lives with his parents in a former monastery, where violent events occurred in the past. His beloved mother with whom Gabriel maintains an almost incestuous relationship is unstable, manipulative, and commits suicide. Gabriel begins to have bizarre, sensual and terrible visions of his mother, and this one offers an opportunity to the reunion to her. But this possibility can have dire consequences.
The film was shot on location of an actual ancient monastery converted into private housing after similar events depicted in the film seemingly took place in the past. See more »

you won't dare to look twice
A raw but a real description of how a sickness can replace a healthy reality.
I like how the director manage to show us a dark part of life. Thru the image, dare to bring a taboo subject, to make us realize, that this is to an important aspect that is not proper managed by us, people. In some parts felt like a documentary, or like a visual journal, delivered almost ' umbilical ' by the mother and son.
This is how i like mostly the european movies despite us american movies. American movies are to commercial
