Quotes

The Psychologist: The Egyptians thought that intelligence was in the heart. Then Plato speculated that the brain was the rational part of the soul, but Aristotle ended by saying that the heart is the center of intelligence and the brain is used only to cool the blood. Breuer himself could not accept that when one of his patients fell in love with him and had to completely stop her treatment.

Veronica screening at Guadalajara international film festival
17 March 2017 | by JairHCastilloSee all my reviews

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

Now, that is a premise is not very often heard in Mexican cinema, this psychological thriller revives true hope in new stories and new themes for the Mexican film industry and most important to its audience.

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.
