Life would be hard for anyone following the unexpected death of their father. But life is harder for young Adrian, Sheila and Alfredo. Because their family is not normal. There s is a family of cannibals and their father, you see, was the hunter. So not only do they have to cope with their grief, they also have to deal with the hunger. And one of them must learn to kill if any of them are going to survive. Balancing sincere emotion with horrifying violence, Jorge Michel Grau s WE ARE WHAT WE ARE is one of the most striking debut films of recent times, a powerful and unique drama announcing the arrival of a major new talent.

Subtitled movie...This is a good movie makes you think about the type of people out there or maybe even the people who live next door, this movie takes a look into our dark side side and how some people have survived by means that most of us would never think about and the art on the cover should tell most of the story, if you enjoy foreign films give this one a chance it will make you skin crawl....

Really good, dark & disturbing movie! Beautiful, well written, intense & interesting. This is more a psychological thriller than a horror tho it is pretty damn horrific. I think the cultural differences may be a major factor in why this is more indy, art house than slasher/gore flick. It almost plays like it was made in the 70's. If you've ever seen the American remake it does this no justice whatsoever! Definitely worth a few watches

Nine Things about the Movie “We Are What We Are”

1. The idea for this movie is pretty interesting, but it doesn’t play out quite as well as I hoped.

2. It’s about a family that stays close by performing cannibalistic rituals.

3. The movie starts out with the death of the father. Then the eldest son, Alfredo, decides he must take over as head of the household. He plans on proving his worth by finding the next human to bring home to eat.

4. The bulk of movie follows the escapades of Alfredo and his brother trying to capture various people to kill. They visit homeless kids, prostitutes, and gay bars. But their quest doesn’t work out quite as well as they planned.

5. There are a couple of cops that are trying to figure out who the family is, and catch them, so that they can be famous.

6. The family is so weird that it’s hard to really relate to anyone in the film. You watch the movie, but you don’t really feel it.

7. The biggest problems in the movie are the uneven acting, and the fact that some parts don’t really make sense. Characters seem to know where to go without being told, and they don’t always seem to have a reason for doing things.

8. There are some pretty violent and gory scenes. It is a cannibal movie, after all. But it’s not as gory as you might think. It could have been much worse.

9. The moral of the story seems to be, if you are going to kill and eat someone, get it right the first time. And don’t ever swallow a whole finger.

Not sure what percentage of the gene pool in the family of central interest in this movie is vampire, is cannibal, or is just mentally not very stable but I will, even surprising to me, give credit to the writers for coming up with a storyline that hasn't either been done before or very seldom so.
Also, I give credit to the family members for a fairly good performance in portraying whatever it is that they were. However, the other acting roles had that "hired extras acting pool" feel to their performances.
The rest of the production crew - directing, filming, sets, etc. were OK adequate for this low budget horror endeavor.

Putting meat on the table to pull the family together takes on new meaning in light of this 1st feature by Grau. This is a satire on family dysfunction and social malaise using cannibalism as a metaphor for the cycle of violence and deprivation of social outcasts.Set in a Mexico City full of corruption,incompetence and hypocrisy.The pathologist reports having half-eaten bodies brought in all the time when a finger is found in the deceased patriarch's stomach.The family left after the father's death run a market stall repairing and selling watches.The bedgraggled mother talks about their need to carry out the `ritual' the father had devised.The husband `s addiction to prostitutes is decried by the mother when the boys bring one home.She batters her to death to gain revenge on what they did to her husband.The two sons and daughter have to choose the leader to be the breadwinner,and decide on Alfredo,the eldest gay son.

A woman singing a sad song about social injustice as she begs for money on a subway train slips Alfredo a scrap of paper bearing the cryptic message: "You are alive", while the mother and daughter talk mysteriously about "the ritual" as if their activities were somehow capable of being justified as some form of sacrament.We are not alerted at 1st to the cannibalism of the family,they just are what they are,it is a given. Consumerism is commented on in the shopping mall where a man vomits black bile,dies and his body is unceremoniously dragged away and the liquid mopped away.The family live in a weird house full of clocks,but there is a pressing need to carry on as before. The boys prey on social outcast,gays,whores and poor children.Social exclusion is more a monstrosity than cannibalism. There is a fight among minorities to survive and be noticed.

This movie has atmosphere and gloom throughout. The one thing that I found amazing was how well the acting was. Top notch performances especially by the daughters.it's not really a horror but a physiological character study of family tradition and what we all do for family. Keep kids away from viewing this disturbing film...it will keep u thinking why we do what we do for love family and survival. Enjoy in the dark
