Torremolinos 73 is a quirky Spanish film brought to you by eccentric filmmaker Pablo Berger (Mam') in 2005. This comedic movie follows an odd couple as they unknowingly become involved in the creation of adult film and entertainment. Alfredo Lopez (Javier C'mara) works for a publishing house selling encyclopedias. One day, he is approached by an executive from his company who offers Alfredo and his wife an opportunity to create what is essentially pornographic film. However, the executive pitches the job to Alfredo with an explanation that the film will serve as nothing more than an educational exploration into the process of human reproduction. Eager with the prospect of making more money, Alfredo and his loyal wife Carmen agree to the offer. They soon begin filming erotic adult film which is distributed across the Scandinavian countries. Carmen makes somewhat of a name for herself as a pornographic entertainer. Things become increasingly complicated when Carmen decides to leave the industry, settle down and have kids. There are several problems with her wish - one of which includes Alfredo's nonexistent sperm count!moreless

Metacritic Score

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    It's a bawdy farce done with real delicacy, a charming adult comedy that ends up with unlooked-for emotional heft. If that doesn't cover all the bases, it certainly comes close.

    The New York Times Lawrence Van Gelder

    Such a joyous celebration of sex and filmmaking that viewers will forgive its director for taking time out to enjoy a little of both.

    Variety Jonathan Holland

    Somewhat wacky tale, based on real events, is kept anchored in reality through attention to detail and by first-rate central perfs.
