The Untamed

A film by Amat Esca­lan­te. In spa­nish with ger­man sub­tit­les.

A mete­or strikes in the moun­tains of Mexi­co. Down below in the val­ley, Ale­jan­dra and Ángel’s mar­ria­ge is in trou­ble: road worker Ángel is having an affair with Alejandra’s bro­ther Fabián, despi­te his macho deme­a­nor. Then an ali­en crea­tu­re appears, sprea­ding lust and dest­ruc­tion. A mix of sci-fi and soci­al dra­ma, Amat Escalante’s film was shot in his home town of Gua­na­jua­to by Chi­le­an-Danish DoP Alber­to Cla­ro, who also len­sed MELANCHOLIA and NYMPHOMANIAC for Lars von Trier.
