The lavish scenery and warmth of the characters make you want to jump on the next available flight in this lovely humorous journey into the lives and loves of a Spanish family.

Well shot rom-com - Belle Epoque review by JD

Spoiler Alert
20/02/2010

The outstanding feature of this film is the beautiful photography that seems to be common in French Spanish and Italian films. May be it is the natural lighting. But so too is the rather bland plot. I didn't find the characters engaging. It is not a bad film and I suspect has a rom-com audience in mind.

Entertaining rom-com - Belle Epoque review by PD

Spoiler Alert
03/04/2018

Set in 1930s Spain the story is told though rose-tinted spectacles. Excellent watching on a cold wet afternoon in the UK if you want to escape to somewhere warm, romantic and comforting. This isn't any sort of accurate portrayal of a Spain torn apart by civil war, but then it isn't meant to be.
