Modelo 73 Details


They say there's nothing like a classic car to impress the ladies, but that's not the kind of automobile our heroes end up with in this youth comedy from Argentina. Manuel (Emmanuel Moscoso), Luis (Sebastian Colina), and Ramiro (Fernando Belton) are three guys just edging out of their teenage years who decide they need a car if they want to get anywhere with the women in the small town where they were born. Pooling their money, they become the collective owners of a 1973 Chevrolet, though they soon discover that the car is far more trouble than it's worth. Manuel, whose father has gotten him a job as a sign painter, is the first to find out how much of a liability the Chevy can be when he meets a girl at a dance club and offers her a ride home -- only to discover that the car refuses to move. Things aren't going much better for his friends; Ramiro is infatuated with a female police officer and has no idea of what to do about it, while Luis is in love with the teacher at his night school, but has to settle for dating her niece. Modelo 73 was the first feature film from director Rodrigo Moscoso. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
