Storyline

Immediately following their wedding, young newlyweds Diego (Víctor Manuel) and Alicia (Ana Belén) hit the road with their camper in search of some adventure and fun. Feeling liberated and free, she even strips off her wedding gown down to a mesh bikini. They drive along and finally pull off the main highway onto a dirt road, ignoring a "No Trespassing" sign. Going deep into the woods, they finally pull over in an empty field and decide to camp there for a few days. They gorge themselves on food and wine, have sex. But the honeymoon doesn't last forever as they say - though usually newlywed bliss lasts longer than a day.

this does remind one of Luis Bunuel
21 March 2014 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

I was pretty sure I was going to enjoy this from the drawn out and downbeat opening of a deserted crumbling cottage with voice-over. What surprised me was how quickly I found myself disliking the two protagonists. Just married and off with their caravan, I quickly went off the joyless leading lady, played extremely well, I have to say, by Anna Beren and then the guy for not dealing with the situation. As it happens the happy marriage is fracturing before our eyes from the start and with talk or a strange and deathly oneness with nature and the reversion to animal behaviour, it is not long before things start to go very wrong indeed. Leisurely paced but beautifully shot with a keen eye for colour and composition, this does remind one of Luis Bunuel as the director seems to delight in the most ordinary and harmless things becoming so upsetting. I had never heard of Gonzalo Suarez but he has made several other films and I would be intrigued to see more.
