Not a massacre….

….but tension is high in this week’s film on St Valentine’s Day.

Winner of “Best European Film” at the San Sebastián International Film Festival 2022.

Rural Galicia provides the backdrop to The Beasts. A French couple, Antoine and Olga seek a peaceful life, farming on their new land but their idealistic vision collides with the Antas’ territorial claims and suspicion of outsiders. Taunts escalate into threats, poisoning the once-idyllic landscape. The line between self-defence and vengeance blurs as both sides cling to their beliefs with escalating desperation.
