The new thread by Rodrigo Sorogoyen (El Reino, Madre) will be presented at the Cannes Film Festival.

After not selecting Madrein 2019, we wondered if Rodrigo Sorogoyen would one day be favored by the Cannes Film Festival. His new movie, As Bestas, was finally drafted at the last minute. It will be presented on the Croisette as part of the “Cannes Première” section.

After telling the story of a Spanish mother who settled in France after the disappearance of her son in Madrethe director of Que Dios nos perdone and El Reino reverse the principle in As Bestas. The film indeed follows a French couple (Denis Menochet and Marina Fois) expatriate in a lost corner of Spain. A seemingly banal story that will turn into a thriller, as the official synopsis indicates:

Antoine and Olga, a French couple, have been living in a small village in Galicia for a long time. They practice eco-responsible agriculture and restore abandoned houses to facilitate repopulation.

Everything should be idyllic without their opposition to a wind project which creates a serious conflict with their neighbors. The tension will rise to the point of irreparable.

The first pictures ofAs Bestas, unveiled by Le Pacte, confirm that Sorogoyen and his attracted co-screenwriter Isabel Peña have concocted a tense and dark new story for us. The film will be released in France on July 20, and we are now firmly waiting to discover its trailer.
