Literal English translation of this film is 'In the Yard': but which is an idiom, to mean, lost, uncertain, bewildered (could be like English 'all at sea'), which far more represents the film's protagonist's situation, but which then, moreover, makes the official English title given, absurd - even more so that 'Screwed' can mean not only the sexual act, but to have been badly cheated, especially financially.

Plot holes big enough to drive a bus through
I won't violate the rules with spoilers here but please read bosenfrai's review. He does an excellent job of reviewing this. Oddly, this was very well acted in spite of some characters having almost split personalities and the scenery was great. It did feel like a real movie and not a low budget affair with stilted acting.
