The Backwoods

Directed by Koldo Serra

Summer 1978. An English couple (Ledoyen and Considine) decide to spend the summer in the house that their friend Paul and his wife Isabel (Oldman and Sánchez-Gijón) have bought in the picturesque Basque countryside. The secluded spot seems ideal for a peaceful holiday. However, on a hunting trip the two Englishmen make a disturbing discovery in a secluded forest cabin, unleashing a vortex of violence that recalls the likes of STRAW DOGS and DELIVERANCE. There is no denying the high impact of this directorial début from the young Basque director.
