She is finally beginning to emerge from this tragic episode when she meets a French teenager who strongly reminds her of her lost son. The two of them will embark on a relationship which will sow chaos and distrust around them.

  • Rodrigo Sorogoyen expands his Oscar-nominated white-knuckler of a short in a most unexpected way: slower, calmer and imbued with metaphysical mystery.

  • It is undeniable that Sorogoyen is a master filmmaker. His work with his actors is impressive, with Nieto, in a fully bilingual performance, and Porier are both natural yet nuanced.

  • Marta Nieto gives us one of the best performances of the year. [Full review in Spanish]

    Nov 11, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • [Sorogoyen] demonstrates a masterful control of the emotional rhythms that ebb and flow throughout the film to unsettling and potent effect as he scrutinises the long-term aftermath of a mother's loss of a child.

    Sep 6, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Madre is a movie that dares to be different. It succeeds because it has a strong central character, a sensational aesthetic and frames that move like ballet.

    Sep 5, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The film expertly recreates the vital disorientation of its protagonist with expert direction. [Full Review in Spanish]
