Take My Eyes / Icίar Bollaίn

One winter’s night, a woman, Pilar, escapes from her house. With her, she takes just a few things, and her son, Juan.Antonio is soon on her trail. He says Pilar is his sunshine and what’s more, she “gave him” her eyes. Throughout the film, the characters struggle to rewrite a strict set of family norms decreeing who’s who and who does what. All these norms are based on wrong notions. Where it says “home”, read “hell”; where it says, “love”, there is pain; and where those norms promise protection, they really mean terror.
