Stars: Maxi Iglesias, Stephanie Cayo, Carlos Carlín

Backpackers 2022 is a romantic comedy Netflix web series starring Stephanie Cayo and Maxi Iglesias. Salvador Campodonico (Maxi Iglesias) wakes up in zero darkness, his to-do list exploding on his phone. He goes to the gym and takes a shower so we can understand how he maintains the ripped physique that we’ll get multiple chances to look at throughout the movie. He then gets down to work: he is an architect for his father’s hotel conglomerate, the largest in Spain. Salvador remodels hotels into gleaming monstrosities or upper-class urban beauties, depending on his point of view. He works so hard that he makes the average workaholic look like Brad Pitt in True Romance.

His dream is to build a seven-star hotel in Cuzco, Peru, but his demanding father has him in check, so he had better build this monument to progress soon, or else. He flies to Cuzco to inspect the site and determines that a large thing made of glass and concrete would look great in the middle of an old world city full of color, culture and tradition. He wants to give Lichi (Wendy Ramos) a huge amount of money for her property, and she is torn between becoming rich as hell or keeping the quaint lodge she’s run for many years.

Fate intervenes when Salvador accidentally breaks the key to the lock of his Airbnb. He heads to a garden party where he meets Lichi’s niece, Ariana (Stephanie Cayo), who sings, dances, paints and enjoys a no-strings-attached lifestyle. Since Ariana and Salvador are the most attractive people on screen, of course they sleep together that night and then coyly exchange barbs for most of the rest of the movie. Look, she’s the hippie type who thinks building a monster hotel right in the middle of this beautiful city is a horrible idea. And she’s a hip guy who can only think of the tourism dollars the hotel would bring to the area. Will she turn him into a transient hippie? Will she make her the kind of person who (gasp) has a schedule? No spoilers, folks.

Thanks to the deity of her choice, the Peruvian tourist board seems to have directed this film, because its biggest draw is Peru itself. The mountains, the valleys, the beautiful rugged terrain, the clouds kissing the peaks, the bubbling streams, the peaceful wooded expanses. And Cuzco teems with charm: delicious-looking food, lively people, rich cultural textures. Book your vacation now and imagine what a hotel full of $400/night rooms would look like among the stone churches and other carefully preserved historic architectural delights. Right. It would look like shit.

So maybe Salvador has something to learn here and Ariana can teach him. Yawn? Yes, maybe, but Cayo and Iglesias muster just enough of a spark to keep their prickly and affectionate friendship from becoming a full-fledged cliché. You know, two people from two different worlds and the two will never meet, and all that. They dump each other, they hate each other, she reluctantly agrees to take him on a five-day backpackers 2022 trip through the mountains, teaches him how to meditate, etc., and they take the scenic route no matter what they do, like this that we can enjoy lovingly photographed postcard landscapes and, in the scene where they visit the hot springs, their lovingly photographed bodies in their underwear.

Without Saying Goodbye doesn’t break new ground at all, but the polished characters, especially Ariana, make sure this is a little more than a fluffy, romantic travelogue. His light comedy never gets too broad or grating; romance doesn’t turn into a mindless mashfest; the drama emphatically avoids being a soap opera. It finds a happy middle ground and stays tonally consistent: a story of two people learning about each other. Cayo and Iglesias overcome the cornball tropes of the script and manage to make us feel involved in their relationship. This is a good movie, and for once, I don’t mean that dismissively.
