Painless
Insensibles | Juan Carlos Medina, 2012
Spain/France | 100 minutes

Around the time of the Civil War, a clinic is established in a remote part of Catalunya to study a remarkable group of children who mysteriously cannot feel pain. Cut to the present, where a young neurosurgeon suffering from cancer searches for his biological parents. Juan Carlos Medina’s ingenious thriller carefully weaves these two stories together, creating an unsettling meditation on the way that pain and physical suffering can be seen to provide the basis for all that is human.
