The film's title refers to the semi-conscious fugue state that precedes the taxidermist's epileptic seizures, inducing a sense of disorientation and dread that Bielinsky uses to deepen the film's psychological impact. Darín's dour, worried expression is a fascinating focal point for his character's unpredictable journey into the heart of darkness, and The Aura's primary setting, in the thick forest of Patagonia, is a perfect complement to the film's ominous atmosphere and deliberately paced intrigue. As far-fetched as it may seem at times, the plot's heightened reality remains utterly convincing, and Bielinsky demonstrates an uncanny knack for escalating suspense in quietly intense situations. From start to finish, The Aura is clearly the work of a filmmaker with seemingly limitless potential, and we can only wonder about the excellent films Bielinsky would have made had he lived. Unfortunately, two slight DVD extras on The Aura give us no insight into Bielinsky's too-short career: the "making of" featurette is very brief and consists primarily of an interview with Ricardo Darín, and the behind-the-scenes musical montage is an equally short and perfunctory assembly of production video set to the moody, electronic tones of Lucio Godoy's subtly effective score. --Jeff Shannon
He is a caring person, surrounded by greed, cruelness, manipulation, lies, survival.
As with Bielinsky's previous feature "Nine Queens," this film mixes genres that lead to interesting ambiguities and unexpected results.

For a foreign language film it is unusual. The silent lead speaks little and appears to be slow or retarded. Read morePublished 9 months ago by crosscountryman
Low quality filming and budget and story line. Perhaps it was just not my taste. It starts out as though they may be considering a robbery in town then ends up in some silly... Read morePublished 10 months ago by David F. Martin Jr.

It's a novel story, but pretty boring. I had to force myself to finish the movie. If you want to watch a semi-intelligent crime caper with a bit of action to it, I wouldn't watch... Read morePublished 10 months ago by acap
