❤️ WHY WE LOVE IT ❤️

Being hailed among the 10 best-rated films by critics in Cannes, THE BEASTS has become a box office hit in France, with more than 320.000 admissions. 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 director 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.

 

SYNOPSIS

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.
