So really the director had free range to do whatever the hell he wanted at the end, and I believe he failed. The movie is both funny and dramatic and so is the bitter-sweet ending. Motivated by Blanca, who have some suspects about the group by the behaviors of some of them, she proposes a game where all diners leave their cell phones on the table, at the condition to say to everyone the contents of all text and voice messages. Some of the scenes are disturbing but not overly gory. With todays crazy headlines, this is the kind of movie that you can actually imagine happening somewhere in this country in real life.
Álex de la Iglesia screenplay , Jorge Guerricaechevarría screenplay , Filippo Bologna based on the movie written by , Paolo Costella based on the movie written by , Paolo Genovese based on the movie written by , Paola Mammini based on the movie written by , Rolando Ravello based on the movie written by Actors. And a colorful and appropriate cinematography by ángel Amorós. In the same night that happens a blood red moon, some longtime friends reunite to dinner: the group is formed by plastic surgeon Alfonso and his wife, psychologist Eva, who are the hosts of the dinner; lawyers Antonio and his wife Ana; taxi driver Eduardo and his young and recent wife, veterinary Blanca; and finally Pepe, a former gym teacher actually unemployed, who surprisingly appears without Lucía, his recent girlfriend. Or is it all just a big coincidence? This worked, and worked very well in it's ability to set up and scare the hell out of the viewers. Girl runs from bad guys, girl trips, girls falls and hurts herself, girl whimpers, duh. It's a remake of an Italian movie, Perfetti Sconosciuti, that also did very well in their country.
The story is entertaining to watch with some good funny moments. And I can see why. So your under attack from bad guys and it's just you, your girlfriend, and a loaded shotgun, so instead of hunkering down and letting them come to you to get shot, you leave your girlfriend alone in the un-secured house while you wander off to the tool shed to find and old ham radio. In the end, I remember about two scenes and the rest is a vague blur. The brilliant beginning idea is developed in a marvelous crescendo that turns into rapidly the situation from a nice dinner with old friends into a bloody battleground that reveals the surprising secrets. I believe two recent films do a great job of accomplishing these factors.
A wonderful and talented plethora of actors, the mainstays of current Spanish cinema, implements a totally suspenseful melodrama interspersed with twists , turns , top-shelf comedic flair and naturalistic theatrics. ¨Perfectos desconocidos¨ captures the essence of the best Alex De La Iglesia, a filmmaker who, at this point in his own story, is respected and admired worldwide and has the most committed fans in the film universe. My recommendation would be to watch the first half of the film, then go and sit by yourself in a cabin, somewhere in the woods. Pepe doesn't bring his new girlfriend with him, which is to the discontent of the rest, since none of them have been met her yet, and there is always a reason behind. Starting like an innocent game, the progressive revelation of secrets as they appear cause a series the events each time more dramatics: Alfonso suspects that Eva has an affair, Ana thinks wrongly that Antonio is homosexual, Blanca realizes a horrible side about her marriage with Eduardo, and Pepe tries to keep hidden. Scott Speedman also does an excellent and believable job. This kind of movie can only works with outstanding actors; and all of them are.
So I've noticed something peculiar. Description In the same night that happens a blood red moon, some longtime friends reunite to dinner: the group is formed by plastic surgeon Alfonso and his wife, psychologist Eva, who are the hosts of the dinner; lawyers Antonio and his wife Ana; taxi driver Eduardo and his young and recent wife, veterinary Blanca; and finally Pepe, a former gym teacher actually unemployed, who surprisingly appears without Lucía, his recent girlfriend. He's a cool director has got much success as ¨Accion Mutante¨ ,¨Dying of laughter¨ or ¨Muertos De Risa¨ , ¨Baby's room¨ , ¨Oxford murders¨ , ¨Balada Triste De Una Trompeta¨ and ¨Perdita Durango¨ is probably the weirdest Javier Bardem film ever made. Do they work for the production company? Somebody proposes a game; left all cell phone on the tables so everybody can see secrets of the others. The game gets more and more interesting as the time goes by because they are starting to wonder if they know who their friends and partners really are. On a warm summer evening and about an eclipse , a loving couple, a plastic surgeon Eduard Fernández and Eva Belen Rueda , a therapist is expecting his long-lasting friends to share a pleasant evening over dinner at their luxurious apartment.
One particular conversation between a father and her daughter carriers more tenderness than any flick released in 2017. It's well acted and smartly written. Without a doubt, this is going to be a gathering of true friends and the waiting comes to an end when the first couple arrives. The scene with Glenn Howerton of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia! Liv Tyler does a convincing job of making you feel the fright and a lot of the acting is non-verbal. So you go visit your friends and someone shoots out your windshield, do you: A- drive off fast and call 911, B- call 911 then run in the house to check on your friends, or C- dust yourself off, sneak into the house quietly, without ever bothering to wonder why your friend's car is wrecked, who's pickup truck that is, why the house is trashed, don't bother turning off the loud stereo, or calling out your friends' names, in fact don't even bother to look behind you to see if maybe the people who shot out your windshield are still around. The Strangers was 'inspired' by true events which means they probably took similarities from stories of The Manson killings and other killings of the same sort.
As well as the darkest secrets are disclosed to all of them and then awry consequences take place , some are cunningly revealed only to the eyes of spectators. Clearly, this uncommon truth or dare game has no point among friends who share everything with each other, nevertheless, when the phones start ringing, who will be the one with the sweatiest palms? So, I wonder, is that a coincidence, or maybe, just maybe, were all those people who posted great comments prior to the movie's release doing it for some other reason? The cast is well chosen, with some well known actors from Spain like Eduard Fernández and Belén Rueda. De la Iglesia's bewildering comedy ¨Perfectos desconocidos¨ blends intriguing elements with humor , tongue-in-cheek and thrills ; so, the tone of the film is light-hearted as well as stirring. What follows is of course calls or messages that need explanations to their partners, as some guests have different secrets. In brief; it is perhaps the best 2017 comedy; with the Italian original being the best of 2016. People need to learn the difference between the two.
Hopefully, I could help some. Nonsense, ridicule , laughters , absurdity , disturbing scenes and many other issues ; you can find everything in this flick. Don't waste your time or money. This is without a doubt an enjoyable movie to be enjoyed for comedy buffs and Alex De Iglesia fans. I believe the director achieved a very creepy feeling, but too many times did he use to obvious cop-out of making loud noises to 'startle' the viewer instead of genuinely 'scaring' them. The film starts at a slow pace, and it took a while to catch me , when it did it was fantastic. The bell rings and it is Antonio Ernesto Alterio in real life married to Juana Acosta , Ana Juana Acosta , the newly-wed Eduardo Eduardo Noriega and Blanca Dafne Fernández.
