Antoine and Olga are a French couple worried about the environment who live in a small rural town in Galicia. When they oppose the project of a wind farm that could benefit their neighbors financially, they become enemies of Xan and Lorenzo, two violent brothers. In Rodrigo Sorogoyen's new film, a thriller that puts at the forefront the tension between those able to maintain acts of environmental resistance and those who go through socioeconomic realities that leave them with very few options, an idyllic landscape frames a big nightmare between neighbors. Even though in The Beasts contrasts are everything, the daily suffering of the two brothers tempts us with the possibility of understanding even those who resort to violence to solve any conflict. How far can some people go in order to escape a scarring, inauspicious future?
