Malencolia still

After 10 years in Berlin, Sira and Pepe decide to give their lives a new direction by returning to Galicia. They buy a house in a village that they consider abandoned, but in which an unusual elderly lady lives with whom they will maintain a strange relationship.

In this low-budget masterpiece, writer/director Alfonso Zarauza shows himself as an expert in building a mysterious, tense atmosphere, in which we never know what's hiding in the abandoned village, while also offering an abundance of dark humour between the wonderfully fleshed-out characters, right until the absolutely surprising ending.
