Comment:From Parisnetdeals

Shown in the Director's Fortnight strand of the Cannes Film Festival 2010, Jorge Michel Grau's independently produced, envelope-pushing shocker was acclaimed as "the Mexican Let The Right One In".

A middle-aged man dies in the middle of a shopping mall leaving his widow, two sons and daughter destitute. The devastated family is confronted not only by their terrible loss, but also a massive challenge. For they are cannibals, driven to eat human flesh because of poverty rife in the Latin American urban jungle.

To justify their diet they surround their mealtimes in ritual blood ceremonies. But who will provide the victims now their father has gone? Who will trawl the city looking for life's flotsam, losers, prostitutes and junkies? The task falls to the eldest son Alfredo to slake the family's hunger. Yet he's far from ready to accept the challenge especially as he carries another secret all his own.

 What We Are

| | See all KurtisMovieLover's reviews (125)

I can not disagree more with the banner on the cover of this DVD "A Cannibal GORE-FEST!" it is not. This film, like, Let the Right One In, is a painful story of love and survival. Yes, the film centres around a family of cannibals, but they are more in tune with "Silence of the Lambs" cannibals, than The Hills Have Eyes cannibals, but the film is about a family, who have lost their father, and their only way to survive and fulfil their "dietary needs" is to do what he normally did for them, with is kidnap, and eat people. They will probably remake it, with extra gore and scares, they will call it probably What We Are, like Let Me In.

This film was amazingly slow, I was really hoping for something special here, something creepy, something that would make me feel scared, disgusted, horrified or any other emotion that relates. Instead it was incredibly slow and boring. I nearly fell asleep half way through. This is nothing like advertised. A serious misfire and a waste of my time

 A cannibal gore-fest....NOT

Another drama film masquerading as a horror movie, a family, with a terrible secret try to come to turns with the loss of the patriarch of their household, while trying to carry on, more secrets that they keep from each other are then revealed.
If your expecting a cannibal gorefest then your going to be sorely disappointed as their is hadly any gore on show. But give it a chance and there is a lot here to enjoy, good acting, real locations and people show a very different way of life to what we are use to in this country. The children's secrets are a bit contrived but the tension builds well to its inevitably conclusion.
Recommended to someone who wants something more emotional then your basic slasher movie

 Dissapointing and slow

I was really hoping to see some gore in this film - after all it is advertised as a cannibal gore-fest, the film was slow, the characters were boring there was hardly any violence/gore and very little cannibalism - the major theme of this film cetntres around time and the performance of a ritual which is never explained or actually shown. BORING
