Israeli directors Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado bring audiences a darker-than-dark comedy about grief, murder, and vengeance.
After his young daughter was murdered by a brutal serial killer, Gidi (Tzahi Grad) joins forces with bumbling cop Miki (Lior Ashkenazi), who follows his own set of rules. Together, they confront the seemingly ordinary man they believe is responsible for the murders of many small children. Miki wants a confession however he can get it, and Gidi wants to take revenge and find out where his daughter's head is buried. When Miki loses his job over police brutality, neither he nor Gidi have anything to lose. Unable to decide which one of them should be the “good cop,” the pair decide on a “bad cop / bad cop” arrangement.
Stylistically shot, beautifully lit and full of both honest drama and absurdist quirk, Big Bad Wolves follows their hugely-popular debut Rabies, which was the first-ever Israeli horror film. Contains subject matter relating to child abuse.
