  • Must get a land rover
  • Thinking, thinking, thinking is all I shall do about this film
  • A bit gruesome for me, but still enjoyed it.  Coundn’t identify the killer.  Beautiful piano music
  • Suspense, psychological thriller.  Well directed and acted.  Throughout the film kept you guessing ‘who done it?’
  • Very watchable.  Pretty good story
  • Tense!  Upsetting!  Great acting and setting
  • Intriguing but I didn’t like the underlying violence
  • Intense film.  Lots of unanswered questions

Cyfarwyddwr – Sebastian Lelio

Mae Daniela Vega’n chwarae rôl cantores drawsryweddol y mae ei pherthynas â dyn llawer hŷn yn dod i ben sydyn pan fydd e’n dioddef ymlediad marwol. Yn hytrach na chael ei thrin â thosturi, mae hi’n wynebu amheuaeth a dirmyg gan yr awdurdodau a gelyniaeth gan ei deulu. Datguddiad trawiadol o ddewrder a chryfder.
