A very peculiar film. It's not an easy one to pinpoint, mixing drama, horror and thriller elements, but never landing on a single genre. Ultimately, it felt more like a dark fairy tale to me, so I'm just filing it under fantasy. There is no dialogue here, Ulloa relies on slick cinematography and a haunting score to tell the tragic tale of a mother trying to reunite with her newborn child. The performances are great, the atmosphere is thick and the execution on point. A lovely little discovery.
