The Untamed

1h 40m Drama, Horror, Science Fiction 2016

Blistering drama combines with a shocking critique of the social state of Mexico.

Amat Escalante (HELI) returns to the director’s chair with a blistering drama that mixes Mexican social realism with Zulawski-esque science fiction.

Young mother Alejandra is a working housewife, raising two boys with husband Angel in a small city. Their provincial lives are upset with the arrival of mysterious Veronica. Sex and love can be fragile in certain regions where strong family values, hypocrisy, homophobia, and male chauvinism exist. Veronica convinces them 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 make peace or suffer its wrath.

“This film is a very sly, subversive and disturbing black tragicomedy about a universal secret addiction.” — Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
