A homemade megaproduction — a four-hour movie with 40 locations (including, incredibly, Mozambique), 50 actors, and dozens of stories, and made for less than $50,000 — Historias extraordinarias defies both conventional models of production and the norms of narrative cinema. Across 18 chapters, three main stories, and a handful of secondary ones, director Mariano Llinás both lightly parodies his film's genre-hybridized being (road movie, thriller, love story, adventure, war film) whilst still keeping the feeling of each constituent part, and offers a Borgesian commentary on storytelling, aiming less to tell stories than to sketch them. Historias extraordinarias is a thoroughly postmodern film, but in this playful and frequently nonsensical machine, there is a heart: it states that film itself has become an endangered species, and that such a titanic work is needed to build something remarkable, although it itself is as thin and impermanent as a house of cards.
