In the heat of the summer. An isolated house in the countryside between woods and corn fields.Ten-year-old twins wait for their mother. When she comes back, her head wrapped in bandages after plastic surgery, nothing is as it was before. Stern and distant now, she shuts the family off from the outside world. Starting to doubt that this woman is actually their mother, the boys are determined to find the truth by any means.
“A horror film? An author film? Our film “Ich seh Ich seh” is meant to be both. We love physical cinema – cinema that overpowers you. But at the same time, with our story we are trying to ask questions that for us are existential. Questions that deal with life realities, questions about education and the balance of power in families, identity and above all about the monstrous within people. We wanted to make a film that says something about our lives — and that at the same time chills us to the bones.” Veronika Franz und Severin Fiala
