a certain charm
16 November 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This starts with a view through the front window of a moving car taken from the back seat. Immediately one is wondering whether this whole sequence should be from this static position, why has nobody cleaned the windscreen and just what is so interesting about these Spanish holiday hotel complexes? Welcome to Jess Franco. There is a certain charm to even his lesser movies when his mind seems to be on something else and here we get evidence of his distraction with candles reflected in table tops and the curious shine where light catches a glass. We also get a decent tale here with a surprisingly effective Antonio Mayans as a detective, a splendid performance by a little girl playing his daughter, although it turns out it is his real daughter - good idea. And then there is Lina Romay, not at her peak and having to wear a terrible blonde wig but still it is the lady herself, not afraid to show a slightly overweight body and not afraid to get very friendly in some rather ugly looking fleshy situations.
