2011, 90 min, Spain, Dir: Montxo Armendariz

A genuinely disturbing sequence early in director Montxo Armendariz's haunting drama about the long-term effects of child abuse arrestingly sets the tone for a thoughtful tale following Silvia (an excellent Michelle Jenner) through life as she copes with a traumatic childhood relationship with her father. Belen Rueda is equally excellent as Silvia's mother, who refuses to see the damage occuring in her own home, and blames her daughter for the rising household tensions. With Cristina Plazas as Silvia's psychologist. Official selection of the Karlovy Vary Film Festival 2011. In Spanish with English subtitles.
