Movie Info

Spanish encyclopedia salesman Alfredo (Javier Cámara) volunteers to make sex films with his wife, Carmen (Candela Peña), for a series of supposedly educational titles on reproduction to be marketed in Scandinavia. What Carmen really wants is a baby, but she unexpectedly becomes a popular sex symbol in northern Europe. Alfredo nurtures an ambition to become a serious filmmaker, but tensions mount when the suggestion is made that Carmen team up with a more dashing partner for future films.

Audience Reviews for Torremolinos 73

    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]
