“Black, terrifying and absurd.”

Australian Premiere

Reminiscent of Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life, 7 Reasons takes a caustic and nihilistic look at contemporary western society. In seven short episodes, each about a human trait we prefer not to talk about, this Spanish anthology film explores the flipside of our satisfied lives. This surrealist horror comedy pulls no punches: its bizarre stories are inventive, funny, sometimes harsh, and always ruthlessly honest—no matter whether the equally bizarre protagonists are crotchety retirees dozing by the TV, a dogged real estate agent selling a flat with a hanged man inside, or a bride and groom who aren’t so sure about the decision they’re about to make.
