Presence of Mind

Country: Spain

Genre: Drama, Supernatural



Another screen adaptation of Henry James "Turn of The Screw." Set in a sun bleached Spanish location, the story concerns a governess who comes to a rambling old mansion to care for two siblings who may or may not be possessed by the spirits of two servants previously employed at the house. It's for the viewer to ultimately decide whether the spirits exist externally or are demons in the haunted mind of the sexually repressed governess.

Rather magnificent. Nilo Mur makes a wonderful Miles - and he speaks English very well (I half expected his dialogue to be dubbed, but this is very clearly not the case). I would rate only two other cinematic adaptations of 'The Turn of the Screw' as being as good as, or better than, this one - "The Innocents" from 1961 (well, that is a rather hard act to beat!), and Iván Noel's "La tutora" (2016)...
