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

an intentional bore
26 March 2004 | by (Guadalajara, Mexico) – See all my reviews

As the movie is called STRANGE, one could expect to take some queer or at least funny looks at whatever. Strange enough, the movie feeds no expectation at all. We see an unemployed surgeon in Argentina who deliberately hangs around killing time in a bar, taking a walk or just staring in the air. The director forces us to pass through this bore in almost realtime, and it is not very funny. His relations to his sister, her little sons and a pregnant young woman he meets show us that the main character is medically speaking well, he is not depressed, but completely self-sufficient in his emptiness. Various scenes of the sort "Did you say something?" - "No." caused a mild laughter in the audience (the Guadalajara film festival). The audience could not understand this lack of interest in communication, and I wonder if anyone can. Don't get me wrong - nothing indicates a critical attitude to Argentina's actual economical and social crisis, perhaps one could detect a kind of shallow existencialism, especially in the "beautiful" photographic shots which underline the bore - grass moving in the wind and so on. Maybe I don't get it, maybe this is exactly how someone in Argentina might feel, useless, empty - to me, this movie doesn't say or explain anything.
