French couple Antione and Olga live a quiet a peaceful life refurbishing abandoned cottages in a small Galician village in Spain. When rich Norwegian developers offer to purchase land from the locals, Antione and Olga oppose the plans, much to the annoyance of their fellow residents. From this disagreement, tensions rise and push the situation to the point of hostility and outright violence. A riveting powder-keg thriller which won nine Goya Awards, including Best Film, Best Director, and Best Screenplay.
‘Sorogoyen uses long, single-take scenes to capture the explosive buildup of tension; it’s a breathlessly compelling device that showcases the phenomenal quality of the acting.’
Wendy Ide, The Observer
‘A fierce, bitter tale with a flinty sharpness: partly a social-realist drama of class and xenophobia, and partly a rural noir horror, a Euro-arthouse twist on Straw Dogs or Deliverance.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
