Saturday night my sis and I went to see EXTRATERRESTRIAL at the 35th annual Portland International Film Festival (or PIFF). So, by the name, you might think it was a Sci-Fi film or a thriller, or horror, or. . . NOPE it was a romantic comedy.
This was Nacho Vigalondo’s second feature and was set in Madrid. It was a story of love and betrayal with aliens hanging over head. . . sort of.
At times it was seriously funny ;) Michelle Jenner was beautiful and played the part well. Just the looks and glances that went on between the actors was very telling...in the story. Julián Villagrán did a great job too. Well, all the characters were great.
The triangle love affair grew into a massive deception of intergalactic proportions and that's what made the movie so much fun. It was almost a spoof on the levels people will go to to hide their indiscretions.
Anyway, if you don't mind reading subtitles, I would recommend this film. It was a fun departure from the local films.
