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
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.
