By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on July 16, 2012
Format: DVD
As long as you don't anticipate the unorthodox Spanish film "Extraterrestrial" to be some kind of a science fiction epic, there are quite a few pleasures to enjoy about this slight but oftentimes charming film. In fact, I'd hesitate to classify this as science fiction at all and I'm afraid the title might set up expectations for certain viewers that the film will not fulfill. There is a little seen alien menace involved, to be sure, but most of the feature unravels as an amusing romantic comedy tinged with black humor. Director Nacho Vigalondo is responsible for the truly twisted and inventive "Timecrimes," a movie I absolutely love. "Extraterrestrial" certainly shares some of the same offbeat sensibilities as that bit of lunacy, but doesn't push as far into outrageousness. Instead, I found the movie pleasant and original. But, if anything, it doesn't take its wacky premise quite far enough. The situations set up in "Extraterrestrial" should have the potential to provide uproarious laughs (and there are some), but most of the time I was gently amused instead.

The movie begins on the morning after a one night stand. A mismatched couple, Julia and Julio (played by Michelle Jenner and Julian Villagran respectively), awake to find the world forever changed. As flying saucers hover over the earth (and one within sight), the city has been abandoned. The principle cast is comprised of four people--the aforementioned couple, a nosy neighbor, and Julia's boyfriend. As she wants to keep her illicit night with Julio a secret, the pair invent a story to explain why he's at her apartment. One lie begets another, however, and soon their tale involves aspects of the alien attack that are pure fabrication. What ensues is a tale of misinformation, misunderstanding, and comedic cover-up.

A pitch-perfect comedy of errors. Extraterrestre is only a sci-fi movie in name. In reality, the sci-fi element just makes for a fun backdrop for all of the romantic shenanigans that take place. Julián Villagrán gives a touching and sultry lead performance -- perfectly balancing love-struck and devious, while looking very good doing it.

I found myself watching the whole thing with a smile on my face -- it's an enjoyable, light-hearted film. It's worth noting that I am NOT normally a fan of rom-coms and I AM a fan of sci-fi movies -- so this had every opportunity to disappoint me, but did no such thing. It's a great date movie or a perfect pick-me-up for a gloomy day.

A man wakes up with a hang-over in a woman's bed, a deserted city, a jealous ex-boyfriend, and an alien invasion is about to begin. The world may possibly come to an end, a love-triangle is becoming dramatic, and four people are cooped-up in a small urban apartment. A massive U.F.O. is hovering over a city in Madrid and while there is strangeness outside, Julio and Julia attempt to mend and sort things out from a one-night stand. This movie portrays human conflict inside the apartment and Weird activity outside. Special Effects Excellent and has funny moments, combined with lots of drama and science fiction. E.T. not walking around, dressed with girl's clothing and playing with children, but this is a Different take on topics. An Entertaining and Highly Recommended thrill ride!

In “Extraterrestrial” Julio (Julián Villagrán) wakes up in the morning to find himself in a room of Julia (Michelle Jenner). Apparently they were sleeping together the night before even though they don’t remember much about it, but what is really surprising is that the city is almost deserted because of the huge UFO floating in the sky.

But to Julia and Julio, the presence of the huge flying saucer is less shocking and annoying than that of Carlos (Raúl Cimas), Julia’s boyfriend who has just come back to Julia’s room, and Ángel (Carlos Areces), a neighbor smitten with Julia. So, this means one female and three males all in love with her.

Nacho Vigalondo (“Timecrimes”) writes and directs “Extraterrestrial.” The Spanish movie is not exactly a sci-fi movie. It is more like a light-hearted comedy drama with four credible characters. Here the story unfolds like a well-made TV sit-com, where a small misunderstanding between one character and another grows into a bigger one, big enough to make the whole situation absurd, if not too serious.

While the idea of comedy set against the sci-fi backdrop is fine, the drama itself is rather too simple except the neatly wrapped conclusion. Some audiences would enjoy the unpredictable behaviors of the characters (especially those who can understand the Spanish dialogue), others many find the film's comedic style too laidback. Whichever your reaction may be, the film offers something different.
