Extraño (Strange)
Santiago Loza's Extrano (Strange) is an understated character study. Axel (Julio Chávez) is a former doctor who resides with his sister (Raquel Albeniz) and her kids. Axel listens attentively, but hardly ever says anything. After meeting the pregnant Erika (Valeria Bertucelli) and hearing the sad story of her friend's death, Axel moves in with her. Although he almost never speaks, they begin to form a bond that Axel must decide to maintain or sever as the baby's due date grows closer. Extrano was an award-winner at the 2003 Rotterdam Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
