Historias extraordinarias

Mariano Llinás Argentina, 2008

MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film Extraordinary Stories

One of the most astonishing films I've seen in the past five years. It's an assemblage of stories that you wish would never end, but instead develop recursively and obliquely, like in a Paul Auster's novel. Ultimately, Extraordinary Stories film about storytelling itself. The ending is a huge let down, or, rather, it's a reminder that what matters is the trip, and not the destination, pardon the cliché.
