On his 9th birthday, a young boy suddenly tells his mother that he wants to go home to his “real” mother. This declaration leads to an eerie and engrossing mystery which blurs the boundaries between psychological thriller and ghost story.

I despise these creepy psychological thrillers that invoke some sort of supernatural evil. I just don't buy the premise, and this one is particularly predictable. But it stars Isabelle Huppert who is, as usual, fabulous, amazing, beautiful.
There's a lot of shame involved in being a parent. That's why we have so many helicopter parents these days. It used to be OK to let kids do what they wanted to do. Now they all have planned activities. You can't stop watching them for a single second or some crazy person is going to take them away from you. The movie starts out interesting, but then becomes way too conventional. Huppert is great as always.
A atypical tale of psychological confusion. Add motherhood, death, mental illness, and Ruiz's tough and you have a spellbinding film. I remember seeing this as a teenager, and it completely took me by surprise.
Interesante thriller que cuenta con unas grandes interpretaciones( Isabelle Huppert corrobora una vez más que es una actriz extraordinaria.), asi como
La manera de crear suspense me parecio muy lograda en ciertos momentos claves gracias a la gran incertidumbre de la historia.
