Posted by Picasa

A movie about a simple couple who are forced to venture into the adult film industry. Alfredo is a struggling encyclopedia salesman. His company in an effort to make it more profitable venture into the audiovisual research on sexuality department. In essence, they are erotic films to be distributed only in Scandinavian countries. Suddenly, Alfredo and Carmen (his wife) are given all the props needed to contribute to the project. To make their project exciting, they get into several role playing characters. The x rated scenes are not offensive in any way and it was funny to watch them adapt to their new roles. Their wardrobe, the vehicles as well as the music was befitting the 70s era. "Torremolinos 73" refers to the title of the full length movie which Alfredo wrote and directed. He based it on an Ingmar Bergman movie and a Danish crew flies in to help him in making the movie. It was seen only by a few people in Spain but it established Carmen as an international sex star in the Scandinavian nations. This is the fourth movie I watched in the Spanish Film Festival starring Candela Pena. All of her roles were different thus showcasing her versatility as an actress. Alfredo is portrayed by Javier Camara, who I first saw in "Habla con ella" but I didn't recognize him here because he was bald and sported a moustache. A really funny film!
