Timecrimes (2007) established writer/director Nacho Vigalondo as a bright new star in the pantheon of wildly inventive genre filmmakers. Extraterrestrial confirms that promise with an original, ingeniously plotted take on the alien invasion chiller. One morning, Julia awakes in her Madrid apartment next to a hung-over Julio and with no clear idea of what happened the previous night. Before the awkward farewells can be exchanged, they both notice an eerie silence that has descended on the city. Alien spaceships dominate the skyline and anyone with any sense has fled. Then Julia's boyfriend arrives and things get a little trickier. A quirky, extremely funny, low-budget sci-fi romp. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: European Cinema.
