Beautifully shot and filled with lovable characters you could watch for hours, Americano is an amazing journey that makes one yearn for travel.

Americano certainly succeeds as a romanticized travelogue, and if this doesn't make one want to grab a backpack and head for the hills of Spain, nothing will.

As Jakes Barnes and friends do in "The Sun Also Rises," Noland's characters are in Pamplona to, among other things, run with the bulls. Those other things include falling in/out of love... [and] drinking wine.

Neither the rambling plot nor the diffuse characterizations offer much of interest, but the young performers are highly attractive, and Robb Webb's excellent cinematography offers a panorama of highly photogenic Spanish locales.

It's ultimately more than a little thin, and watching it feels like listening to a teenager rhapsodize about his summer vacation -- naively charming, but hard to take seriously.

Writer-director Kevin Noland effectively utilizes his fine young cast and the natural beauty and rich culture of northern Spain in amiably posing a timeless question of youth.

Watching Americano is like hearing a long story about someone else's holiday, and while it seems everyone had a nice time, it's too bad they didn't shoot a better film while they were there.
