Abel, DVD


Diego Luna directs this Mexican drama about the family life of a boy with learning difficulties.

Nine-year-old Abel (Christopher Ruiz Esparza) has spent the past two years in the psychiatric ward of a local hospital on account of his strange behavioural patterns.

Doctors now want to transfer him to Mexico City, but his mother Cecilia (Karina Gidi) decides instead to bring him back to the family house to live with his teenaged sister Selene (Geraldine Alejandra) and five-year-old brother Paul (Gerardo Ruiz Esparza).

Strange events follow as Abel begins to assume the role of head of the household, his own good-for-nothing father having disappeared without trace two years previously.
