Coasting: tourism and landscape

(p.120) Chapter Seven Coasting: tourism and landscape
Spanish Spaces
Liverpool University Press

This chapter sets women in a complex relation with tourism in terms of sex and work. It specifically analyses Marta Balletbò-Coll's Costa Brava, Icíar Bollaín's Hola, ¿estás sola? and Pablo Berger's Torremolinos 73. These films reveals that tourism has a local dimension that renders Spain's tourist sites as localised in time and space. However, the blurring of the distinction between place and non-place is readily evident in these particular films. The tourist labour in these films is carried out in order to satisfy other people but not oneself. This chapter shows the differences between the films, revealing the fulfilment of Spanish female desire in spatial terms.
