El Aura * Fabián Bielinsky (2005)

Posted in drama, thriller and tagged on by .

From the director of “Nueve Reinas” comes another nice film. “The Aura” is about a man dreaming of the perfect crime. By means of his superb memory he thinks it should be easy to become rich. He has two problems though.
“El Aura” plays in Argentinia (I think) and is a very moody, slow and minimalistic film in which the sound is often replaced by music. Esteban is a not too exciting character, but his slow pace takes the viewer into his world. The setting are vast woods, the atmosphere is quite dreamy even more so because of Esteban’s illness.
“El Aura” surely is not a must-see, but whenever you get the change to see it on TV or so, I suggest you take it.
