Sin señas particulares
The story of Magdalena symbolizes the numerous mothers in Mexico looking for their missing son or daughter.
‘Hypnotic and heartbreaking, “Identifying Features” [the English title] is a feature debut to marvel at, but only once you’re able to shake off the bone-deep chills emanating from Mexican filmmaker Fernanda Valadez’s disorienting tale of a mother’s search for her missing son. Equal parts odyssey, investigation and descent, this eerily shattering dispatch from the heart of a grief-beset country—a double winner at Sundance last year [the Audience Award and the Best Screenplay prize]…—has the power to expand our notions of what a border story is.’—Robert Abele, The Los Angeles Times
