FROM 14 Apr
A middle-aged French couple moves to a local village, seeking closeness with nature, where their presence inflames two locals to the point of outright hostility and shocking violence.
Amidst the gorgeous, lush landscape of Galicia, Sorogoyen injects a pulsing, unnerving score that reflects the building hostility between the two households. The surrounding farmland may be Antoine and Olga’s joy, but the isolation is also a constant threat.
Sorogoyen hits the bullseye in placing’ The Beasts’ in an intersection between a rural thriller and a Western in which all the weight of the story falls upon its characters.
