Casanova’s ‘La Pieta’ drama wins French horror accolade

SPANISH director Eduardo Casanova yesterday saw his “La Pieta” drama about a toxic mother-son relationship take top prize at France’s Gerardmer international horror and science fiction film festival.  

The film, set in 2011, depicts the bond between the mother, Libertad, and her son Mateo as an analogy for the relationship between the people of North Korea and its government.
