The Beasts

As Bestas

63rd TIFF: Greek Premiere

Vincent and Olga are a French couple who settled long ago in a village in Galicia’s hinterland. 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, taking coexistence to a point of no return. A rural thriller with reminiscences of Boorman or Peckinpah but with a modern twist and a surprising narrative structure, by one of the most brilliant Spanish directors of his generation.
