Everyone knows what to do if one morning the sky would be absolutely full of UFOs: run as fast as you can. However, what would happen if the invasion started while you are in the flat of the girl of your dreams, the one you have just met?
"Los salvajes" talks about Punishment. The concept is build from a moral perspective, where all the bad acts in life are considered sin and deserve that punishment. But it goes further because also gives a religious perspective, so, there is no need to be a bad person to gain punishments and also sexual desire is a sin.
The acting is great. Pedro Armendáriz plays a character he played many times, a wealthy and hard man, one of many macho stereotypes, taking the woman he likes and doing his will. Also there is a young Carlos Ancira as his younger brother with a mental illness. A tortured Anita Blanch completes the main characters.
Filmed in black and white, the cinematography is gorgeous and the high contrast reveals the deep psychology of this characters, derived from the literary work it is based on.
