There are hunters and prey, Norman. That's the only f*cking truth in this world.
Compared to Straw Dogs or Deliverance, this thriller set in the Basqueregion of Spain adds that local charm that makes it worth watching.
It features Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight, Harry Potter) and VirginieLedoyen (8 Women, The Valet), and that's reason enough to watch. AddAitana Sánchez-Gijón (The Machinist, The Whore and the Whale) and PaddyConsidine (Hot Fuzz), and you should have a great movie. There areother very good actors (Lluís Homar, Andrés Gertrúdix, Álex Angulo)familiar to those who watch Spanish movies, and they add immensely tothe pleasure.
They find a little girl (Yaiza Esteve) locked in a cabin in the woodswith lobster claw syndrome. They take her to help and immediatelyenrage the locals.
During the hunt for the girl, one of the locals decides he wants sometime with Ledoyen, but he didn't count on Norman (Considine) possessingsome cajones. He couldn't shoot a rabbit, but you don't mess with hiswife.
A lot died before the chase through the woods was over.
Featuring the great music of Leonard Cohen.
