Finding Altamira

Movie

Based on true events, "Altamira" stars Banderas as Marcelino Santuola, a well-off amateur archaeologist in Cantabria, Northern Spain. In 1879, his small daughter stumbles across Paleolithic cave art of galloping bison. But Santuola's findings are decried as heresy by the Catholic Church and a forgery by French specialists.

80/100
In Antonio Banderas, Mr. Hudson has a winning de Sautuola of personal modesty, scientific integrity and paternal warmth.

Hugh Hudson's Finding Altamira is a rote but engaging historical drama about the eternal debate between truth and mythology.

50/100
Antonio Banderas' admirable performance fails to energize Hugh Hudson's handsome but ponderous period drama.
