THE UNTAMED (Mexico/Switz/France/Germany/Denmark 2016) ***
Directed by Amat Escalante
Starring: Kenny Johnston
Review by Gilbert Seah
Director Amat Escalante stars and directs this supernatural mystery in a family drama setting.
There is a sex monster loose in the country. Though its keepers have described it as one that will give extreme sexual pleasure and will not harm anyone, the monster has done some harm, both physically and emotionally.
This monster gives a new meaning to the saying of having a snake in ones pants. The main protagonist is Ale (Ruth Ramos) who has a husband and two kids and a gay brother. It turns out that her husband is also having sexual relations with her brother.
Ale is not that sexually monogamous either, having a fling with the sexual snake herself. If all this sounds silly, Escalante’s film actually works because he is always several steps ahead of the story.
THE UNTAMED ends up quite an intriguing film despite the abrupt ending.
