Just as New York City was the backdrop in Woody Allen's Manhattan, the stunning city of Barcelona is the setting for the romantic adventures of Vicky and Cristina. These two young Americans spend a summer in Spain, amidst the luscious Mediterranean sensuality of Barcelona where they meet a flamboyant artist (Bardem) and his beautiful but crazy ex-wife (Cruz). Vicky (Hall) is straight-laced and about to be married. Cristina (Johansson) is a sexually adventurous free spirit. When they all become amorously entangled, the results are both hilarious and chaotic. Vicky and Cristina learn some hard lessons about love - and about themselves.
Woody Allen's most commercial film for years, Vicky Cristina Barcelona is a funny and wise meditation on love, in all its romance, exhilaration, heartache and elusive mystery. It is one of the director's most engaging films and a true return to form. The cast really shine and create an intense chemistry between the characters, with a standout performance from Penelope Cruz.
Sexy, witty and wise, Vicky Cristina Barcelona is genuinely captivating and enjoyable. Like a glass of sangria, it's a zesty and luscious film to be savoured.
