The Untamed

19 Aug 20175 Sep 2017

Alejandra is a housewife, raising two boys with her husband Angel in a small city. Her brother Fabian works as a nurse in a local hospital. Their provincial lives are upset with the arrival of a mysterious woman Veronica. Sex and love can be fragile in certain regions where strong family values, hypocrisy, homophobia and male chauvinism thrive. Veronica convinces the family that in the nearby woods, inside an isolated cabin, dwells something not of this world that could be the answer to all of their problems – something whose force they cannot resist and with whom they must either make peace or suffer its wrath.

Celebrated filmmaker Amat Escalante follows up his critically lauded features Heli and Los Bastardos with the award-winning The Untamed, which critics have called ferociously intelligent, brilliant and frightening.
