With a narrative that recalls both Don's Party and Milou en Mai - albeit with a heightened level of earthy Spanish flair added - Antonio Hernandez's black comedy-cum-political satire El Menor de los males (AKA The Lesser Evil) unfolds in the autonomous Spanish community of Galicia, where a bunch of characters gather for a riotous weekend at a country estate. At the center of it all is a politician trapped helplessly between two women - his loudmouthed older sister, and a jilted mistress who exhibits a flair and a taste for blackmail.
