My first review on this website I wanted to dedicate it to the movie I liked most at the Malaga Film Festival, where nobody understood that it returned with "only" two awards. This is The Extraordinary Tale, a Spanish film despite its title that can be described as a black comedy that tells the surreal and original story of a couple since they meet till they have their first child. A roller coaster of emotions. At first the energy of the film engages with you and leaves you in ecstasy, but gradually the movie will give a new feeling, it could be described as discomfort. Many may think that this part of the film is a fall of rhythm, but it shows that it is totally intended, as in downs of a roller coaster, it takes your breath away in the next unexpected rise, because as we approach the end, our nerves are increasingly tightening, we can not even breathe, the humor with which we laughed at the beginning freezes into a mixture of sensations, all unpleasant, to reach its unexpected and brutal end. In the film In The House it is said that after a good ending the viewer thinks "I didn't expect it, but could not be otherwise". Just the way we think when we watch this cruel and wonderful fairy tale.
