Las Truchas ("Trouts") is a 1978 Spanish film directed by José Luis García Sánchez. It satirizes middle class society under the rule of Franco via a story about the annual dinner of a fishing club whose members eat rotten trout while refusing to accept that there is a problem with it.[1] The film was entered into the 28th Berlin International Film Festival, where it won the Golden Bear.[2]
