Spanish director Gerardo Olivares beautifully integrates laughter and pathos, along with some risky, suspenseful moments, to create a warmhearted, satisfying movie about reconnection and redemption. Working once again with Jean Reno as he did so successfully in the wonderful Brothers of the Wind, Olivares makes the most of the scale and grandeur of the location, in this case, the Sahara Desert. The conflict and threatening events (bandits, border interrogations, a villain from their past) are familiar ones, but the uniqueness of the characters, especially for American audiences, gives the movie its unconventional specialness. 4 Latas is escapist fun with wonderful performances, though tempered by enough heartbreak to give it emotional heft.
