An unfaithful wife, a lovesick waitress, two depressed farmers and a man biking around the Ivory Coast with a goat strapped to his back are all mixed up in the mysterious disappearance of a woman in wintry France. Everything is decidedly not what it seems in this intricately constructed non-linear thriller, in which the perspective constantly changes to reveal surprising connections. Witty, suspenseful and highly satisfying, Dominik Moll’s ONLY THE ANIMALS is a return to form for one of the most distinct voices in European cinema.
