Daniel Sánchez Arévalo’s film, “Primos” [Eng. Title: Cousinhood] is one of those typical feel-good romantic comedies churned out at this time of year.

After Diego is dumped by his fiancée at the altar, cousins Julián and Miguel decide to cheer him up by taking him to a coastal village where they spent their summers growing up. Diego catches up with Martina, his childhood sweetheart, now a single mum. While he tries to win her back, Julián gets interested in Clara – a girl he’d shunned earlier because she was too young – she’s now all grown up and pretends to be a prostitute to annoy her alcoholic father. The film is easy to watch, mildly funny and intelligent at times – but on the whole, a bit shallow. It is however full of pretty girls in summer clothes and sunshine – easy viewing as I said.
