Pantaleon y las Visitadoras Reviews

  • May 11, 2017

    Pantaleon is funny at times, but gets increasingly pessimistic. It is interesting to see the main character, Captain Pantoja, a straight-arrow army officer show his true colors under temptation. He's incredibly disciplined, but also selfish and hard to like. The Colombiana is portrayed as a temptress, but there are hints at her motivation--mainly survival--that make her sympathetic. I liked the subtle character study, but overall the movie was kind of dumb and overlong.

    "Pantaleón y las Visitadoras" comienza como drama cómico de increíbles situaciones pero se vuelve en un drama completo gracias a los gajes del oficio en que se ve forzado a meterse el protagonista en su absurdo cumplimiento del deber, muy bien plasmados por Salvador del Solar Angie Cepeda y el resto de su notorio elenco.

    Outstanding film. Great acting and sexy women. I was happily surprised because it exceeded my expectations.

    The characters in this movie were predictable stereotypes who I couldn't relate to and the acting was really wooden. I suppose from the storyline that the audience is meant to like and respect the Columbiana. And yet she is depicted as nothing more than a manipulative bimbo who works very hard to convince Pantaleon that she is just a whore then whines to him later that he only sees her as one. The worst thing about this film is how boring it was. For a movie about hot Peruvian hookers, it was really really bland.
