El Carro (2003)
Critic Reviews for El Carro
El Carro boasts a lovable ensemble cast, with a standout performance by Zaira Valenzuela as 14-year-old Paola. With a pierced nose and black Converse All-Stars, she's the family's - - and the film's - - driving force.
This sociological farce from Colombia tells the story of how a vintage convertible changes the lives of a middle class family to mildly humorous effect.
First-timer Luis Orjuela paint-rollers on soupy layers of humor and emotion while mixing in measured shots of class commentary.
Runs out of gas.
Writer Dago Garcia and director Orjuela are less interested in a comedy of sexual manners than in exploring the ties that connect husbands and wives, parents and children, and brothers and sisters.
Audience Reviews for El Carro
It begins with clever jokes and examinations on human nature and our peculiar idiosyncrasy. sadly, the nostalgic story becomes clichéd and overlong.
