Imbued with the spirit of Robert Louis Stevenson and filtered through the sensibilities of Jorge Luis Borges and Thomas Pynchon, three unconnected, voiceover-narrated tales each start off innocently enough and then veer into ever stranger, more fascinating realms.

Our take

Clocking at 4 hours, Extraordinary Stories is an unashamedly overwhelming cinematic phenomenon, a strange artifact that brilliantly entwines myriads of narratives and a glorious celebration of storytelling. The film that made Llinas an international cinema hero.
