Description: As the players in this dark drama move across the screen, they symbolize aspects of the human psyche and society that force the viewer to judge them at a certain distance. Particularly jarring is the saga of a young child who was born out of an incestuous relationship and is kept locked up and alone. The child cries constantly, and in a gesture that defies human feelings, the woman of the title (Jeanne Moreau) decides to end the child's misery. This film was originally released in Brazil in 1975, and later in the U.S. -- it certainly is not for all types of viewers.~ Eleanor Mannikka, All Movie Guide
