Spaniards do try too hard sometimes

Sometimes films just go too far in trying to be different. Occasionally this can be seen by horrible, "experimental" or "artistic" camerawork, improvised scripts or at worst, black and white scenes with übercontrast.

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.
