An alien invasion takes place at an unknown city in this Sci-Fi/comedy directed by Cantabria director Nacho Vigalondo, 1 April 2013
Author: ma-cortes from Santander Spain

The Woody Allen of Science Fiction -as the critic/director Jason Reitman writes- brings us another amazing film titled ¨Extraterrestrial¨ . Everyone knows what to do if one morning the sky would be absolutely full of UFOs : run as fast as you can . The picture deal with an amusing situation : what would happen if the saucer invasion started while you are in the flat of the girl of your dreams ? . As Julio (Julian Villagran , recently Goya winner for his acting in Grupo 7) didn't remember go home with her , as Julia (Michelle Jenner , a successful young actress who has recently starred Isabel La Catolica) didn't mention her boyfriend named Carlos (Raul Cimas) and the neighbor named Angel (Carlos Areces , Eloy De La Iglesia's usual) has gone crazy . But none of them expected the Alien invasion . Meanwhile , TV communicates : Please stay calm and remain in your homes .

The picture relatively succeeds because of the thriller , humor , plot twists , suspense , as well as a twisted written script delving into the starring paranoia in such extreme situation . There is a science-fiction premise doesn't have to dominate a story's narrative. Instead it can serve as an interesting backdrop that casts familiar characters in a new light and gives alternative motivations for what would be otherwise commonplace events . Despite low budget the movie manages to be intelligent , intriguing but also a little bit boring . Following a similar vein in Nacho Vigalondo's Time crimes (2006) , in this recent film titled Extraterrestre (2011) , examines the fallout of a one-night stand in the context of an alien invasion . The same kind of lies are told and the same rash decisions made to cover up the infidelity , but the paranoia of potential aliens among them heightens every emotion and lends comedy to some situations where there'd be none . The final result is an offbeat dramedy that's captivating , in spite of not being all that fun or especially thought-provoking . The good thing about this film is that the director made it on a shoestring budget only having to do a few sets , yet the movie works on many levels but is constantly reconfigured . Casting is frankly well , giving fine performances , though little known with exception of Michelle Jenner and Julian Villagran . Thrilling and suspenseful musical score by Jorge Magaz . Colorful and appropriate cinematography by Jon Dominguez .

This motion picture relatively cheap was tautly written and directed by Nacho Vigalondo in his second movie , his first was the international hit titled ¨Time crimes¨ with Karra Errejalde . Nacho is a good young filmmaker , a little prolific director because he is usually writer for television and shorts filmmaker , he has only realized two films and nowadays is in post-production of ¨Open windows¨ with Elijah Wood and Sasha Grey . ¨Extraterrestrial¨ is without a doubt a weird , mysterious and comedy film to be liked for Science-Fiction and suspense fans , turning out to be one of the most original Spanish movies of the last years , though pretty inferior its predecessor ¨Time crimes¨. Rating : 5'5 . Acceptable and passable .
