With celebrated screenings at this year's film festivals in Venice and Toronto, it's hopefully just a question of time before official release dates will pop up all over Europe for “Goodnight Mommy“ (or “Ich Seh Ich Seh“). Directed by Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala - respectively the partner and nephew of producer Ulrich Seidl - a summer getaway in the peaceful Austrian countryside never looked that creepy before.
“In the heat of the summer. An isolated house in the countryside between woods and corn fields. Ten-year-old twins wait for their mother. When she comes back, her head wrapped in bandages after plastic surgery, nothing is as it was before. Stern and distant now, she shuts the family off from the outside world. Starting to doubt that this woman is actually their mother, the boys are determined to find the truth by any means.“
