French couple Antoine and his wife Olga have moved from the city to a small village in Galicia, Spain, to start an organic farm. Although the couple do their best to integrate into the community, the locals remain averse to the two. Things really go wrong when the couple successfully opposes the arrival of a wind farm, as the locals were hoping precisely such a farm would bring in some money. Their neighbours in particular, brothers Xan and Lorenzo, are keen to drive out the two 'intruders', but Antoine and Olga do not succumb to the harassment. The situation threatens to get completely out of hand.
Las bestias is a exciting Spanish thriller from Oscar-nominated director Rodrigo Sorogoyen, which portrays in an original way the classic contradictions between newcomers and locals, progressiveness and conservatism. Rodrigo Sorogoyen co-wrote the screenplay of this contemporary western.
