Ledoyen and Considine play a young married couple at the end of the 1970s, who come to visit a friend (Oldman) who now lives in the Basque region because he has married a woman from there (Sánchez-Gijón). Their tranquil summer turns to horror when they discover a girl with horribly mutilated hands in the forest. They try to help her by taking her away from the home in which she is locked, but the local villagers, who have to protect the girl, start a pursuit in the forest they know much better than the visitors.Written by
Gary Oldman, Paddy Considine and Virginie Ledoyen were dubbed for the Spanish version of the film. The scenes where the characters had whole scenes with English dialog were all dubbed. Only when the characters spoke in English with the Spanish characters, the dubbing actors said their lines in English. 'Aitana Sánchez-Gijon' dubbed herself. See more »

Could someone explain the boycott campaign against this movie?
I enjoyed the movie last week at its Premiere in Madrid. It was very good. A very interesting piece of film art, where the picture is made of a good fusion of beautiful images, ominous silences, sparkling sounds, mature musics, good acting, rhythm, great photography, etc. A very good tension is achieved in the film and even though the story may be somehow known in the history of the movies (there are confessed prior references) is this time treated differently and with a bright eye which captures your eye and grasps your attention from the very beginning. All actors bright in the movie, specially Oldman and Homar, although all the cast is really convincing (mention also Ms. Ledoyen, Ms. Sánchez-Gijón and Mr. Considine).
It is not a perfect work of art (art is as such impossible of perfection) but is a real work of art.
For that reason, I cannot really understand (yet there may be a reason which may not be so difficult to explain, such as an explicit boycott) how so many people voted so low for this movie, ... and they did it even before it was officially released!! I hope now the public can make accurate and sincere voting without any particular economic interest or prejudice.
I do really recommend it to all the people interested in good movies.
