Film Recommendation: The Orphanage



3 words to describe this movie: haunting, mysterious, heart-wrenching


A woman brings her family back to her childhood home, which used to be an orphanage for handicapped children. Before long, her son starts to communicate with an invisible new friend.


My Thoughts:

I would just like to say that this plot has more to it then IMDB’s generalization. I have a thing for foreign films so I decided to watch this one. Especially since Guillermo del Toro is the producer; I am a big fan of his Pan’s Labyrinth film. This film honestly settled as pure entertainment for me, but I loved the cinematography: the location and the architecture of the home. Also Belén Rueda is a terrific actress and the plot unfolds nicely and keeps you on your toes.

Recommend to: people who enjoy foreign films and mysteries with mystical and dark elements.

Overall Rating: 7/10
