Only The Animals
Franco-German director Dominik Moll (Harry, He’s Here to Help) returns with another thriller exploring our darker desires.
Two depressed farmers, an unfaithful wife, a lovelorn waitress and an African con artist are drawn together in a mystery surrounding the disappearance of Valeria Bruni Tedeschi’s glamourous Evelyne Ducat. The action switches between international locations as the links between the characters are gradually revealed. Stylishly shot and elegantly structured, Only the Animals finds Moll at the height of his storytelling powers and working with an excellent cast, whose characters’ motivations call into question the contrast between our public and private lives.
★★★★ “Moll has given us this audacious, witty and absorbing mystery thriller, a tale of adultery and amour fou with a gamey touch of the macabre” - Peter Bradshaw’s Film Of The Week, The Guardian
★★★★ “A dark little trifle, whipped up from the sad, strange business of being human.” - Danny Leigh, Financial Times
