Critic Reviews for Torremolinos 73
Torremolinos isn't perfect, but it stands as an amusing entry into the world of art-house cinema.
As a first feature-length effort for Berger, Torremolinos 73 shows promise of a director with a humane touch, with or without the extra skin.
The narrative eventually runs out of steam. But writer-director Pablo Berger maintains a lighthearted tone.
Shifts in tone but always remains affectingly sweet and human.
It works, but just barely (no pun intended, considering all the nudity).
