Storyline

The protagonist is Axel, aged about 40, a doctor who no longer practices his craft. He is living temporarily with his sister and her children. He doesn't do much, just exists a little between the living and their things. One day, he meets a young, pregnant woman. A relationship develops, a kind of love, and they live together, like driftwood temporarily clinging on to each other. Written by Anonymous

extrano
1 August 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

EXTRANO is a beautiful and intelligent piece of cinema.

JBschapira's comments are completely sophomoric and ridiculous. Before people criticise, can they criticise the film by the type of film that it aims to be. Not every piece of cinema HAS to be drama heavy -- and truthfully -- most of the great auteurs eschew drama in favour of tapping away at something far more existential and provocative. Voila...the magic of cinema begins.

Sure we can all be sucked in by the feel good drama of something like YOU CAN COUNT ON ME... but this kind of film is a good drama. Not great cinema. EXTRANO is made by a director who clearly has different intentions. It's like comparing a poem and a persuasive essay or story. It's impossible.

In response to Schapiro's comments : you should give up your critical analysis of cinema. Your review of EXTRANO is SO off the mark. You obviously have nothing but two sticks to rub together for a brain.... Hence...why Extrano won the tiger award at Rotterdam..and you my friend, are writing dumb ass responses (green with envy?).

If you don't get this (and I wonder if you understand other interesting films by Argentina's new wave...Lucrecia Martel, Santiago Palavecino --- OR if you care for any interesting world cinema at all...Tsia Ming Lang, Shohei Imamura, Achichatpong Weersakathul, Arnaud Depleschin...yadda yadda yadda....)

Criticise a film on the level it seeks to be received at: Not on the level YOU (as somebody clearly cinema ILLITERATE) seek to find. You sound like a child.
