Synopsis

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

We follow up Llinas’ terrific debut with the film that made him an international cinema hero. 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.
