UK Premiere/ Animal

50-something Antonio is a conservative family man who has diligently followed the rules and put in plenty of hard work to achieve his perfect life. But that bubble bursts when he finds out he’s in urgent need of a kidney transplant. When all legal means for obtaining a kidney fall through, he turns to the black market where he’s forced to the moral edge by a couple who put his desperation to the test. Antonio will have to radically alter his sense of identity to follow his own basic instinct: the animal instinct. With another fantastic performance from Francella (The Clan), this wickedly ironic psychological thriller packs a great soundtrack and plenty of dark humour, as it playfully provokes questions about shifting morality in extreme circumstances.
