Excellent Mexican psychological thriller!!
17 May 2017 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Saw the movie in the Guadalajara Film Festival. I was awed by the twists and turns the plot offers.

A stubborn patient trying to outsmart the psychologist at every chance she gets. The seemingly steady plot takes brusque change of directions at every chance, until you find yourself deep in thought of the profound meaning of everything that is happening on screen.

When credits appeared, I was still deep in thought trying to get a grip of what was shown on the screen and how it wakes sensible feelings and emotions inside myself.

Very interesting, complex and revealing movie!!

Not often is Mexican cinema immersed in this type of thrillers. Excellent direction, script, and acting. Congratulations to all involved!
