The Headless Woman

Directed by Lucrecia Martel

Veronica is driving on the highway in north western Argentina. She becomes distracted by the ringtone of her mobile phone and runs over something, but drives on. The police confirm that there were no accident reports. But she has doubts about what she had really hit. Was it an animal? A child? An existential suspense drama, The Headless Woman confirmed Martel as one of the major voices in contemporary world cinema.
