Love and Pain and the Whole Damn Thing Reviews:

This heart-tugging April-August romance cannot be equaled for the lush Spanish scenery, perfect photography, haunting music, and courageous humor. A young Timothy Bottoms was new from his perfect performance in THE LAST PICTURE SHOW, and Maggie Smith was in fine form portraying a spinster whose rose had lost its bloom. Her role is an perfect example of how a skilled, pretty actress enters a more mature, "seasoned" scene of her career. Both characters are slight misfits, fishes out of water on a cut-rate bus tour in the Spanish back-country who start as antagonists but gradually draw closer. This is a tried formula, but in expert hands. It is a mystery why LOVE AND PAIN has never been marketed in any video format, or posted more prominently on the resume of either of its stars.


After viewing Love and Pain nearly thirty years after it's initial release, I felt that this movie had certainly passed the use of time. This sometimes overlooked movie is an perfect car for Maggie Smith in a dramatic role; even more believable than her classic, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. Initially the movie appears to be a very clever, dry comedy, accented by Maggie Smith's prim and proper British morals pitted vs Timothy Bottom's portrayal of a rich, but socially awkward American student. From the hysterically funny camping-trailer stage to the bitter-sweet twist at the end, Love and Pain is a timeless treasure worthy of a zone on your video shelf!


Yes, it's too romantic. Yes, it's a fairy tale. But it's so lovely. Timothy Bottoms is a loser on a bus trip through Spain where he meets his female counterpart, Maggie Smith. Of course, she's older than he is, but they later search out they're kindred spirits. This film is a dream. I, of course, am a romantic, so I loved it from the moment I first saw it, when I was just a kid. If you're a romantic, you'll love it too.
