When he sees a motorcycle go over the side of the boardwalk at San Sebastian, crashing onto the beach, Jota goes to see what happened. He discovers that the vehicle was being driven by an attractive young woman. He calls an ambulance and gets onto it with her. When the emergency medical staff discover that she has amnesia, Jota takes advantage of the situation to claim that she's been living with him for the past few years. After she gets out of the hospital, the young woman accompanies him to a camping resort called "The Red Squirrel," and they have a number of adventures involving her obnoxious husband, who has been looking for her, and an equally obnoxious campsite neighbor.

Audience Reviews for The Red Squirrel


A man is about to commit suicide when a beautiful young woman on a motorcycle crashes nearby; she has amnesia, and he tricks her into believing he's her boyfriend. An overlooked but haunting Spanish psychological thriller, full of odd and obscure portents and distant echoes of VERTIGO.
