Movie Info

Alfredo Lopez is a tired encyclopedia salesman, and Carmen is his faithful wife. The lives of this married couple change forever when the Montoya publishing house, in which Alfredo works, makes a proposal to them to make erotic films that will sold in the Scandinavian countries, under the guise of being a false encyclopedia about reproduction. Unknown to them both, Carmen has become a porn star in the Northern countries, and a Danish crew flies in to help Alfredo make an Ingmar Bergman inspired feature film called "Torremolinos 73." Instead of a career in show business, Carmen is eager to have a baby, and the tension between the artist and his muse grows.

    It's really great to see a film that views pornography as a positive thing which is not the sole domain of the greasy weirdo who lives off Max Hardcore crap. It's even better that it's so charming and witty helped along by a great lead turn from Camara.

    [font=Century Gothic][color=indigo]"Torremolinos 73" starts out with an unsuccessful encylopedia salesman making the rounds in 1973 Spain.(Well, if somebody showed up on my doorstep with a bust of Francisco Franco, I would slam the door in his face, too.) The company he works for has decided there is more money in making educational sex films for a Scandinavian company. Well, what is a soon-to-be-homeless married couple supposed to do? Oh, and his wife desperately wants to have a baby...[/color][/font] [font=Century Gothic][color=#4b0082]"Torremolinos 73" is an amusing satire of sexual and social attitudes and filmmaking. There are very good and convincing performances from the two leads.[/color][/font]
