The Night of the Sunflowers

This debut film by director Sanchez-Cabezudo is an intense thriller about several different protagonists in a small town in rural Spain. Bringing in multiple characters across the film’s different chapters, the story tells of a scientist and his team who are sent to investigate a newly discovered cave on the outskirts of the town. The scientist’s wife gets attacked and raped by a stranger passing her on the road. In a case of heated desire for revenge and mistaken identity, events become irreversible and spiral to the point of hiding from the police and covering up a murder. What really stands out is the way that the story is beautifully and carefully woven together with humour, suspense, twists that you don’t see coming and at many times even sympathy. A highly recommended exploration of retribution and what choices people make when there are none.
