From The Producers Of THE ORPHANAGE And PAN'S LABYRINTH, Enter Another World With VERBO
Though he is little known on these shores and is only making his feature debut now, director Eduardo Chapero-Jackson has long been considered one of the brightest lights in Spanish film. Chapero-Jackson's short films have been so successful that they have received theatrical releases and Verbo - his feature debut - is one of Spain's most anticipated of the year. Need a further endorsement? It is backed by the producers of Pan's Labyrinth and The Orphanage, producers with a remarkable run of high quality films. Here's the official synopsis:

Sara is a teenager who doesn't understand the world in which she lives. Only Liriko, a mysterious character who leaves enigmatic messages across the city, seems to understand her. Her search for meaning will lead her to a secret world, where she will embark on a great adventure in which life and death are at stake. If she succeeds, Sara could finally be able to leave her mark on the world.
The first official teaser arrived today and you can check it below.

Is that Verónica Echegui with the really short hair? She'd probably make a pretty good Lisbeth Salander. Or maybe Eliza Dushku.

I really dig the broken-glass-in-your-face scene. This could be worth checking out. Some beautiful visuals there.

Oh hell yes. Fincher, look no further!
(By the looks of it she already has the tattoo...)

She's got a bit of a Natalie Portman v2.0 thing going on but I like the look of things here.

It's very little to go by. Wait for more. Hope it is worthy of the two succesful predecessors and that digi is used to tell the story.

Are there english sub releases of the shorts available?
