Love at First Kiss (Eres Tú) is a romantic comedy directed by Alauda Ruiz de Azúa starring Álvaro Cervantes and Silvia Alonso.

Love at First Kiss is a romantic comedy with all the flaws and virtues of the genre and all its familiar, tender and charmingly repetitive stereotypes.

This time it has all the humor of literature and its jokes about writers with self-destructive tendencies who are somewhat alcoholic and that, back to the stereotypes, we find very funny.

May you enjoy it in all its predefined charm.

Movie Review

Love at First Kiss
Love at First Kiss

Charming, tender, romantic and funny, what is a romantic comedy with its virtues is very easy to see, and its flaws are forgotten as soon as it ends.

An entertaining joke-dispensing machine about couples and sentimental relationships that, coincidentally and due to the genre’s craft and humour, ends with that magic of giving hope to human beings who, without a partner, continue consuming this genre and which, deep, deep down, we have ended up developing a liking for.

It neither discovers anything nor intends to, but it has its inspiring moments and its “cheeky” slant with a Spanish touch that, without inventing any new dish in romantic gastronomy (we insist), is pleasant and entertaining.

As always, these comedies depend on their protagonists (and the effectiveness of the jokes in the script). If the parts work, we can consider ourselves to be entertained, and Álvaro Cervantes and Silvia Alonso work, and so do Susana Abaitua and Gorka Otxoa in their roles as secondary friends to give structure to the plot… as usual.

And of course, the film is carried along by Pilar Castro as a writer at a low point in her life.

Our Opinion

It’s just another romantic comedy that will not go down in history and does not seek a place in cinema’s vanguard. It aims to entertain and it does so very well with its literary touch and some jokes that, this time around, have made us laugh and have given us that hour and-a-half of solace so that we can, now that spring is coming, believe in love again.
