It's hard not to notice the innate appeal and talent of Victoria Santaella in this film. As the lead character the story revolves around her as well as family relationships. There is a claustrophobic sense in the way her life revolves and toying with the idea of what the title meant, I somehow presume she was "castrated" or "cut off" from the more usual ways and goings-on for a woman of her age and wisdom. This is a film worthy of a discerning audience. Do check this out!
