Critic Reviews for Pantaleon y las Visitadoras

Director Francisco de Lombardi fills his sensual film with plenty of gorgeous shots of the lush landscape and its equally exotic, miniskirted 'fauna.'

This film might've fared better if those involved realized how fiercely their material begs for a plunge into the deep end.

A pedestrian film that provides little more than a superficial treat.

Promises to skewer sexual politics but instead turns out to be a one-joke pony.

Wears one down with a long running time and diminishing returns on its wicked premise.

This is a pretty good movie that gives you insght on how government, no matter how upstanding the individuals that are in it, is very corrupt because it based on initiatory force.
