Veronica screening at Guadalajara international film festival
During Guadalajara international film festival 2017, I had the opportunity to attend the screening of this movie.
In the film, we follow a reclusive psychologist living in a lonely cabin in the middle of the woods, that decides to take as a patient a seeming disturbed young woman, as the therapeutically sessions move forward a mystery of childhood traumas unravels

Finally, I must mention that from a technical standpoint the movie is very good, shot in beautiful black & white and with excellent camera work.
Kudos to all the staff involved in the making of this film, for taking chances to bring something else to Mexican cinema.
