Departing from the stark and often brutal realism that has characterized his previous films, THE UNTAMED sees Amat Escalante follow in the footsteps of Pasolini’s TEOREMA as he tells the story of a young married couple’s encounter with a mysterious woman who comes wandering down from the mountains after a meteor strike. The stranger helps the couple realize their true selves but in doing so, she unleashes forces which threaten to tear them apart. With its tasteful special effects and thriller-like intensity, THE UNTAMED marks an exciting new direction for one of Mexico’s most important living directors.
No one does “problematic” like Paul Verhoeven
