The Forest

Pablo Siciliano, Eugenio Lasserre

Argentina, Psychological Thriller, 2008
105 min, HDV, Color
Spanish with English subtitles


El bosque is the story of Dannenberg, a man who lives an isolated and terribly monotonous life in the middle of the countryside. Every day, while standing in front of a couple of tombs, he has the premonition that someone will be coming soon. One afternoon a clock’s pendulum, previously at a standstill, starts working on its own. As he nervously makes his way outside, he notices the shadow of two figures approaching. What he was waiting for has now come and from this point forward, everything becomes unpredictable. A psychological thriller with complex and disquieting sound design.
