Video: Mother of Tears (2007)

Dario Argento’s The Three Mothers trilogy reimagines Our Ladies of Sorrow, the three goddesses of suffering from Thomas De Quincey’s Suspiria de Profundis, as three ageless and supremely powerful witches. In Mother of Tears (2007), the concluding film in the trilogy after Suspiria (1977) and Inferno (1980), Father Johannes (Udo Kier) explains the history of the Three Mothers to would-be witch hunter Sarah (Asia Argento). Directed by Dario Argento.
