Poster of Al otro lado del espejo

Al otro lado del espejo [is] one of Franco’s strongest films of the 1970s. ... [It] is a well-made, carefully elaborated tale about a young woman’s inability to escape gnawing guilt after the suicide of her father. ... Unfolding with tragic inevitability, the story boasts a stand-out performance from Emma Cohen, harrowingly expressive as a fragile child-woman locked in a circuit of self-thwarting unhappiness, whose visions of her dead father go hand in hand with the deaths of three men to whom she feels close.
