Are we all really strangers to one another?
1 May 2000 | by (Coral Gables, Fl) – See all my reviews

Throughout this film, the question is raised: "Do we really know who our closest beings- spouses, friends, business partners, our parents, even ourselves really are?" This may be a very pretentious, way too abstract rhetorical question to address in one film alone. Nonetheless, that is what STRANGERS intends to do. It does so by continuously revealing secrets about its cast of characters. The focus is particularly on the person of a lone private investigator obsessed with a recurring dream. This P.I. is hired by a suspicious husband after his wife's behavior changes radically after her mother's alleged suicide. The investigation takes on the character of a cat and mouse game between the wife and the investigator, though involving most characters who are busy playing similar games amongst themselves. Through the course of this investigation/game, the private investigator tries to figure out his recurring nightmare by involving those involved in his investigation. All this intrigue serves to reinforce the original premise about all people being strangers. If you watch the film, please tell me what else we learn from sitting through this philosophical drama from Spain. I didn't learn anything new about the human race's unpredictable nature. The film is entertaining, well acted and pretty to look at it. But, where's the beef?
