When I saw the poster of "Torremolinos 73" at my favorite movie theater, it was clear: I had to see that movie.
I expected 90 minutes of bursting out laughing. Let's say, that wasn't exactly the case.
It sure has its moments of incredible comedy but, surprisingly, also moments of real tragedy and drama. I was quite stunned.
In the end, the story is absolutely original, I wouldn't know about anything similar, the actors all do a great job, the dialog is mostly very nice and all this ends up in a fine little piece of entertainment.
Not perfect, not amazing, but amusing and entertaining? Definitely!
