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.

It works, but just barely (no pun intended, considering all the nudity).
A small, honest comedy about passion, movies and love, so human that it leaves a bittersweet aftertaste that may soften the laughter and provoke some reflection.
