Historias extraordinarias

Mariano Llinás Argentina, 2008

dionysus67's rating of the film Extraordinary Stories

If postmodern narrativity could redeem itself this would be the way: three unconnected (yet not incommensurable) stories on homecoming and self-discovery amid the contingency of globally organized crime, dispossession, bureaucratic inertia, colonialism. Extraordinary circumstances make ordinary people extraordinary agents. Gloriously shot against vast expanses of land it fuses myth and reality in untold originality.
