Historias extraordinarias

Mariano Llinás Argentina, 2008

DrFirestone's rating of the film Extraordinary Stories

Unique storytelling builds up the atmosphere in a stylish and intelligent way, and (to some extent) reminds me of Tarantino. The stories are quite heavy, filled with nostalgia and loneliness, about people drifting through life, lost. While I enjoyed the vagueness, how things are left untold, and the dreamy flavour of the whole experience, I have to say it doesn't wrap up - it "just ends", in a similar way it begins.
