CGiii Comment

There's a sexually-voracious, bisexual alien in the woods! Yes...it is as ridiculous as it sounds.

Take out the alien, a few nips and tucks with the screenplay and this would have been a mighty fine domestic drama...a cheating husband, with his wife's brother no less! But...alas...there's that metaphor! The bisexual alien! Admittedly, it's a very creepy looking alien...but, what the hell is it doing in this film!?!

Is this a comment on bisexuality? The cheating husband is bi, the alien is bi...what happens when two 'bis' get together!?! Well, you'll just have to watch the film to find out!.

Metaphors!!! Dontcha just luv'em!


THE UNTAMED (LA REGION SALVAJE, 2016) by Amat Escalante [Excerpt 1] from Richard Lormand on Vimeo.

The(ir) Blurb...

Young mother Alejandra is a working housewife, raising two boys with her husband Angel in a small city. Her brother Fabien works as a nurse in a local hospital. Their provincial lives are upset with the arrival of the mysterious Veronica. Sex and love can be fragile in certain regions where strong family values, hypocrisy, homophobia and male chauvinism exist. Veronica convinces them that in the nearby woods, inside an isolated cabin, dwells something not of this world that could be the answer to all of their problems.
