Marina Antunes [Film Festival 05.07.10] Mexico trailer news horror drama

A “deeply moving” cannibal film? Gotta be honest with you - I never thought I’d hear those sentiments together never mind actually consider that they would be accurate but seeing the trailer for Jorge Michel Grau's We Are What We Are (Somos Lo Que Hay), I’m thinking that it may not only be possible but very likely.

Grau’s film focuses on a family struggling to survive after the patriarch is killed on the street. But this isn’t a matter of simple survival for you see, the family consumes human flesh, meat that the now dead father used to provide. Without it, they’re bound to die. So you have a tender tale of a family’s struggle for survival mixed in with the horror of cannibalism. It’s such a simple twist to turn drama into horror that I’m surprised it’s never been done before.

I only have one note on this trailer: the sound design…it’s bloody excellent.
