Argentina, 1970s. A desperate young woman goes to a clinic to have a clandestine abortion. As her pregnancy is already through the fourth month, the doctor refuses. Instead, she proposes to sell the baby to one of her clients and offers to provide shelter in her house until the child is born. Their disturbed personalities will become intertwined in a strange and dangerous relationship.

In Spanish with English subtitles.

“There’s a fearlessness to The Attachment Diaries that sees it power ahead without letting us pause to take a breath, and its determination and originality explode on the screen in something altogether wild, continuing to demonstrate just how ahead of the game both Javier Diment personally and Argentine genre film more broadly continues to be.” Alexandra Heller-Nicholas, Alliance of Women Film Journalists

“One of the most stylish and transgressive erotic thrillers I’ve seen in the last decade… The Attachment Diaries is a masterful exercise in tone and story that is equal parts shocking and empowering, which surprisingly never falters into simple exploitation.” Dan Tabor, Cinapse
