A slick Spanish entry in the light romantic comedy genre....
"Cha-Cha-Cha", a slick Spanish entry in the light romantic comedy genre proves that Hollywood has not cornered the market on inconsequential fluff. There are not many surprises here...it falls short of screw-ball comedy and lacks the bathos and quirkiness of Almadovar. However, a patient viewer will be rewarded with more than a glimpse of the marvelous Mr. Noriega who seems born for the camera and should have a long, distinguished career ahead of him in international films and the reborn post-Franco Spanish film industry. The closer the camera gets to him, the more astounding he is. Let's hope that some of his better performances will get across the Atlantic, although his last major film "Alatriste", a big budget opus starring Viggo Mortenson no less, has still not done so more than a year after its Spanish release.
