Cuento de Navidad

Is that an axe in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

Putting a nicely-nasty spin on Christmas hijinks, this Spanish thriller pits a pack of less-than-angelic preteens against a female bank robber disguised as Santa Claus.

Having stumbled into a deep hole in the woods, the grimy, injured crook needs help, but her “benefactors” prove to be unruly little twerps more interested in snatching a share of her ill-gotten loot.

That sets up a cat-and-mouse battle, featuring the aforementioned axe, and a lot of pent-up anger.

Let the bodies (and the mistletoe) hit the forest floor.
