Amsterdam Spanish Film Festival: Las Bestias
Vincent and Olga are a French couple who settled long ago in a village from the interior of Galicia. There they lead a quiet life, grow their vegetables and rehabilitate abandoned houses, although their coexistence with the locals is not as idyllic as they wish. Their refusal to implement a wind farm will accentuate the disagreements with the neighbors, especially with the brothers Xan and Lorenzo, taking coexistence to a situation of no return.
Oscar-nominated Rodrigo Sorogoyen (San Sebastian’s awarded MAY GOD SAVE US, Toronto’s and 7 Goya winner THE REALM, Venice’s MOTHER) makes his most international work up to date. Making a Rural Thriller with reminiscences of Boorman or Peckinpah but with a modern twist and a surprising narrative structure, this film will step him from one of the most brilliant Spanish directors of his generation to one universally acclaimed. With Ozon’s regular Denis Ménochet and multi Cesar Award nominee Marina Foïs in tour-de-force performances, after watching you will wonder if living in the city might be safer after all.
