Filming wraps on Nicolas Pesce's Piercing, starring Mia Wasikowska

Mia Wasikowska

Director Nicolas Pesce earned critical acclaim with his feature debut THE EYES OF MY MOTHER last year (our own Eric Walkuski gave it a 9/10 review), and he has wasted no time getting his follow-up film off the ground. In fact, filming has already wrapped Pesce's second movie, a psychological thriller titled PIERCING.

Based on a 1994 novel by Ryu Murakami, PIERCING stars Mia Wasikowska and Christopher Abbott in the story of 

a man who kisses his wife and baby goodbye, seemingly headed away on business, with a plan to  check into a hotel, call an escort service and kill an unsuspecting prostitute. His plan is thwarted by the alluring and mysterious call girl who arrives at his room, leading to a pulsating game of cat-and-mouse.

Also in the film are Laia Costa, Maria Dizzia, Wendell Pierce, and Marin Ireland.

I haven't gotten a chance to see THE EYES OF MY MOTHER yet myself, but I intend to check it out soon, and its Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD release will give me a chance to do so on March 7th. While I wait to see how well that film will work for me, PIERCING also sounds like a promising project that's worth looking forward to.
