Our take

The debut feature from Jonás Cuarón, son of the Oscar®-winning filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón (Roma), Year of the Nail is a soaring love story. Told in a style that brings to mind Chris Marker’s masterpiece La jetée, this tender tale heralds the arrival of a new voice in contemporary Mexican cinema.
