Since Agusti Villaronga’s compelling film had its North American Premiere at last year’s Palm Springs International Film Festival, it has gone on to win 9 Goya Awards. It is the official Spanish submission for the 2011 Academy Awards®, the first time that a Catalan-language film has represented Spain at the Oscars®. In the harsh post-Civil War years in rural Catalonia, a shockingly vicious attack takes place. Ten-year-old Andreu comes across the victims, a father and son. Leaning over the dying boy, Andreu hears him whisper “Pitorliu”—the name of a monster supposedly haunting the village.When Andreu’s father is wrongly accused of the murder, the boy sets out to find the real killers and brings to light long-hidden secrets. Villaronga keeps the story moving relentlessly to dark and sinister places with breathtaking cinematography and a brilliant ensemble cast, led by Francesc Colomer as Andreu and Nora Navas as his mother. Though the film contains a scene that may offend those with a heightened sensitivity regarding cruelty to animals, no animals were harmed during the shooting of the film.
