Las Bestias The Beasts

About the film

Vincent and Olga are a French couple who settled long ago in a village in 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.

“A percussive and urgent score adds a scratchy, nervy quality which is in clever contrast to the film’s visuals”
