The Portrait of Her

Antonio, a successful painter is losing the battle with depression. Off balanced, his beautiful wife Ana hopes to find a grip on her life in therapy but here, we begin to drift eerily from the reliable guidelines of reality into the mind of Ana. Boundaries blur, as her visions and dreams are becoming more and more disturbing, it becomes clear that her dream life is contiguous with her waking one.
While packing up Antonio’s painting workshop, she finds a disturbing portrait that Antonio made of her. Why did he see me like this? is the question that triggers a downward spiral of imaginary dialogues and dreams around the perception of herself in this strange duel in her psyche. When an old friend, Gaspar, invites Ana to spend some time at his country house the door opens to a deeper mental confusion where her violent and self-destructive impulses intensify.
This beautifully shot and emotionally evocative movie is a journey into the hallucinations and inner workings of a psychotic mind with its paranoia and delusions to make us experience just how real they might feel to those who are experiencing them.
