Acclaimed Argentinean filmmaker Lucrecia Martel steps back behind the camera for her third feature film with this tense thriller concerning a woman who fails to recognize the people surrounding her as well as their intentions after inadvertently killing a dog while driving on the highway. Budgeted at two million dollars, The Headless Woman marks the second collaboration between Agustín Almodóvar's El Deseo production company and Buenos Aires-based outfit Lita Stantic -- who had previously teamed to produce the celebrated Cannes Film Festival hit The Holy Girl. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
No stop! Don't click on Add Q. Wow, this is one of if not the worst movie I have ever watched. It is boaring, dreary, and a total waste of time and money. It drug on and on. I still don't know what it was suposed to be about.
This is about the worst film I have ever seen. No Really....they must have been given a grant because there would be no other reason for this film to have been made. The Headless Woman?......The Pointless Movie....
I watched this for 70minutes before giving up - it moved slow, provided no answers, and was just plain uninspiring and dull. I agree with the last reviewer - no need for sleeping pills if you watch this one! I fell right asleep after trying to watch this
Art perspective or not, this is one LONG and BORING movie. Having to endure this kind of boredom while reading subtitles is a special kind of torture:-) Unless a family member is in the cast, best to avoid.
Filmed well, the acting is good, and I get the director's point about the tribulations of the post-trauma this woman deals with, but... I have to agree with most of the other reviewers that it's a truly boring film. I was never "waiting for something to happen", as a lot of people seem to have naively been expecting, but the film just doesn't successfully paint the dark mood meant to haunt the viewer.
