Critic Reviews for Bosque de sombras (BackWoods)

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

A decent cast and ok production values get completely lost in The Backwoods, an atmosphere-rich psychological thriller in which psychology and thrills are missing.

Top Critic

...the film's terrifically promising first act slowly-but-surely gives way to an atmosphere of tedium and superfluousness...

Reel Film Reviews

Lots of questions are left unanswered, like a movie you fell asleep watching on late night TV and were never able to find again.

Straw Puppies.

Full Review… | April 16, 2008

rock-solid performances and an atmosphere of moody menace never fail to grip, even if the film traverses territories that are just a little overfamiliar.

A less traumatising version of Straw Dogs.

Cast: Gary Oldman, Paddy Considine, Aitana Sánchez-Gijón, Virginie Ledoyen, Lluís Homar

Director: Koldo Serra

Summary: An idyllic stay in the Spanish countryside takes a nightmarish turn for two couples when they discover a feral girl chained inside an abandoned house and decide to turn her over to the authorities. But the real drama begins when locals armed with shotguns show up looking for the girl.

My Thoughts: "Not to bad of a thriller. Not the best film I have seen with Gary Oldman or Paddy Considine, but it was interesting enough. Your heart really goes out to the poor little girl. The story is a little slow and takes a bit to get interesting. I thought Paddy Considine stood out as the most interesting character. He has fast became a new favorite of mine. I seem to have been watching quite a few movies with him in it lately. Not on purpose. But I'm glad to have seen him in so many different roles. He's quite the actor.
In the end the film is a decent thriller. Worth watching for the story and for Paddy Considine and Gary Oldman alone."


Super Reviewer

Of course Gary Oldman is amazing, but does it really fascinate you to watch him clip his fingernails, shave, and watch t.v. with a convincing accent?
