Another powerful dark tale comes from the director of “After Lucia” (2012), this earlier movie of his tells the story of a brother and sister who see their life turned out after a traumatic episode that unexpectedly happen out of the blue. “Daniel & Ana” is a brutal and very dark story that it may disturbs some viewers but it is pretty clear and evident that this feature is another little gem by this Mexican director, who has a fantastic way to tell these strange and depressing stories who are affecting the viewers due their simplicity and merciless raw reality. Definitely not the movie for everyone but those who find interesting the director’s works cannot miss this cruel tale which deals with taboo and uneasy situations. Sometimes a strong piece of cinema is what you need.
