Storyline

"Americano" centers around Chris McKinley, a recent college graduate backpacking through Europe who savors his last three days of freedom before boarding the career fast track back in the United States. In Pamplona with two friends, Chris meets an Australian thrill-seeker, a quintessential Spanish beauty and an enigmatic provocateur, all of whom encourage him to rethink his life. As the minutes and seconds until his departure tick away, Chris struggles with an age-old question: Should he follow the beaten path or risk it all on the road less traveled? Written by Zorianna Kit

Two ships passing in the night.
17 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For many watching this movie, it will be deja vu. Two strangers meet while on vacation and a romance blooms but the vacation is too short for the romance to blossom into anything more than a brief romance. That often happens to men in military service who all too often must cut short the romance as their leaves expire. But that is not the case in this movie. In the end the man has a choice. He has a job waiting for him back in the US and he is faced with a choice - either chuck the job and stay with the woman that he is becoming infatuated with - or return to the US and leave the romance.

Every viewer will make their own choice. Leonaro Varelo plays a vivacious charming and sophisticated young woman apparently of some affluence who many men would give their right arm to have as a wife. To meet her on vacation is like having one's wildest dream come true. But it is unlikely that she will leave Spain if she marries the man and what is the man to do who cannot speak Spanish The movie is in a nice setting, reminiscent of Hemingway, in Pampona, Spain, just at the time of the big festival and the running of the bulls. We witness a bull fight which is presented in a way that gives most viewers unfamiliar with bull fights, the essence of bull fighting, if not any expertise in it. And there are some beautiful scenes of the country side.

Dennis Hopper plays an ugly role in this movie and the movie would have been a better movie without him. It was his role and excessive vulgarity and sex that kept me from giving it more than a 5. however, the background and the story make it interesting enough that I recommend it.
