Writer-director Nicolas Pesce’s beautifully photographed but aggressively unpleasant art-house horror film will no doubt have its champions, but it won’t find one here. The Eyes of My Mother tells the story of a young girl named Francisca (Olivia Bond) who grows up on a remote farm with her largely silent father and overly intense mother who was once an eye surgeon in Portugal — a vocation that implicitly carries some windows-to-the-soul metaphors that Pesce never figures out what to do with.
