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

One of the best movies I've ever seen
7 February 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Extraño: as an adjective, strange Extraño: as a noun, stranger Extraño: (from "extrañar") as a verb, to miss (I miss you) Extraño: (from "extrañar") as a transitive verb, to surprise (it's hardly surprising)

The director plays a lot with the different meanings of the word. Axel (Julio Chavez in a superb role) gives life throughout the movie to all this different meanings while he gets into our life as spectators and as part of the calm tension of the whole film, and into Erika's as a friend, and into his relation with his family as a sort of uncle and brother and medic and creature, into his silence, his talking-only-when-it-is-absolutely-necessary. Into his life. I had the pleasure to meet Santiago Loza in the International Film Festival in Rotterdam and I think his ability and sensibility as a director (let's not forget that this is his first feature) to show things as the four meanings (and so many more) is what makes this film one of the best films I've ever seen.
