AV Club Rated: C Jun 15, 2012 Full Review Frank Scheck Hollywood Reporter Neither the rambling plot nor the diffuse characterizations offer much of interest, but the young performers are highly attractive, and Robb Webb's excellent cinematography offers a panorama of highly photogenic Spanish locales. Apr 25, 2006 Full Review Kevin Crust Los Angeles Times Writer-director Kevin Noland effectively utilizes his fine young cast and the natural beauty and rich culture of northern Spain in amiably posing a timeless question of youth. Rated: 3.5/5 Mar 28, 2006 Full Review Eric Campos Film Threat Beautifully shot and filled with lovable characters you could watch for hours, Americano is an amazing journey that makes one yearn for travel. Rated: 4/5 Sep 6, 2006 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews Americano certainly succeeds as a romanticized travelogue, and if this doesn't make one want to grab a backpack and head for the hills of Spain, nothing will. Rated: 2.5/4 Sep 6, 2006 Full Review Dan Webster Spokesman-Review (Washington) As Jakes Barnes and friends do in "The Sun Also Rises," Noland's characters are in Pamplona to, among other things, run with the bulls. Those other things include falling in/out of love... [and] drinking wine. Sep 6, 2006 Full Review Read all reviews

chip c I'd love to learn more about Ricardo, where did he come from? How did he get there? Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member an unfinished script and film in need of serious repair. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Movie was a masterpiece , except for the bullfight which was grewsome. but thats their culture. I was honestly impressed with how this turned out. everyone should watch , I was hoping for a glimpse of ruthanna's breasts though Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member If I were to use two words to describe Americano they would be liberating & vibrant. Liberating in the sense that the overall point of the film is about letting go & letting love in, a true spirit of adventure. Vibrant in part for the colorful Spanish landscape, the mysteriously profound Riccardo, the beautifully exotic Adela & the way Chris, the film's lead, interacts with them. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Romance is one of the best parts of backpacking, although it is difficult to let go of the romance in a foreign country at last. I can feel for Chris. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Its like a promotional movie of Spain, Pamplona. Its a love story between a american tourist and a beautiful spanish girl on an interesting way. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews
