Film Review: La voz de Mamá / Mom´s Voice (short film) (2016)

SYNOPSIS:

Hay lazos que la muerte no puede cortar.
There are bonds even Death can´t break.

REVIEW:

More short films, kiddies! Today we have LA VOZ DE MAMA (MOM’S VOICE), directed by Mariano Cattaneo. The film is in Spanish with English subtitles.

Belen (Fiorela Duranda) misses her mother. Mom apparently has passed away fairly recently, and Belen just can’t get her voice out of her head. She tries to talk to her father (Adrian Garavano) about it, but he never seems to have time for Belen. At the very least, no time for that conversation.

But there’s always Mama’s voice. Belen talks to her frqeuently, and learns a few things she could have done without knowing. One should never trust the dead, though.

This is a straight forward ghost story, a tale of loss and regret. Belen is the focus of our story as she tries to come to terms with the fact that her mother is gone.  Ms. Duranda is very young but she carries a lot of the story on her shoulders.

I can’t say a whole lot without giving spoilers. The film is very good visually, and there’s some really nice special effects to look at. It’s short, sweet, to the point, and pretty damn scary.

Using my special short scale of one to five, five being awesome, I’m giving this film four ghosts.
