Movie Info

​Living in a modest shack in the Cuban countryside, thirteen year old Lili and her mother appear trapped in a meager, suffocating existence by her domineering father, Eduardo. His sudden absence should represent a new freedom for the girl and her mother, but Lili is distraught, and we come to discover just how strong the influence of this monstrous man is over his family. In desperation at losing Eduardo, Lili carries out a ritual taught to her by a spiritualist to help bring him back, leading Lili to uncover a disturbing truth about her father's disappearance.

[Sanchez] is deeply committed to the seriousness of his tale, but seems to feel a leaden pace is the only way to do it justice.

Sánchez really has something difficult but necessary to say here, about how sometimes an oppressive patriarchy endures because the people who benefit from it - even if just marginally - won't let it stay dead.

August 1, 2019 | Full Review…

It's like a cubist painting that shows us all the angles of this miserable household, putting each character's pain into relief. It does this with more emotional force than most "prestige" films that deal with similar issues.

A simple, well crafted slowburn that is more interested in exploring harmful dynamics than supernatural scares. [Full review in Spanish]
