Poachers (Furtivos)
Released two months before Francisco Franco's death, Furtivos was perceived as a metaphor for the Spanish society engendered by the dictatorship. 

The film centres on the ruthless and jealous Saturna and her meek son. The imposed peace that surrounds them barely smothers a throbbing brutality until Milagros, a young and rebellious girl, enters their lives and unleashes a chain of violence.

Selected by Pedro Almodóvar.
