Product Description

Oscar winner Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men), Oscar nominee Penelope Cruz (Volver) and Golden Globe nominee Scarlett Johansson (The Nanny Diaries) light up the stunning city of Barcelona in this sexy romantic comedy. Vicky and Cristina are two young Americans spending a summer in Spain, who meet a charming Casanova and his beautiful but volatile ex-wife. When they all become romantically entangled, the smoldering sparks begin to fly in hilarious fashion. Critics rave, Vicky Cristina Barcelona is one of Woody Allen s finest films, with bravura performances from its incredible cast (Jeffrey Lyons, Reel Talk/NBC).

Two beautiful young women arrive in Barcelona for a bit of quiet study (Vicky) and more man hunting (Christina), and they both find a gorgeous painter (Javier Bardem - I barely recognized him) hard to resist. Then they meet his wife, played wonderfully by Penelope Cruz. A sumptuously shot, low key, romantic movie with a few twists. The humour underlying the script, the love of life; you'd hardly associate this film with Woody Allen. One of his best ever.
I especially appreciated the scenes in Spanish between Bardem and Cruz(subtitled, of course). The barely suppressed violence, the instability of their relationship. The menage a trois is artfully managed; the sexuality is without overt nudity. Strongly recommended as one of the best of 2008.

I'm an Allen fan. For me this was not a one of his great films, but was an
entertaining, diverting one, with two terrific performances by Javier
Bardem and Penelope Cruz, a very good one by Rebecca Hall, and a decent
one by Scarlett Johanssen.

The key flaw for me-- Johanssen's character comes off as very shallow, so the complexity
of her relationships with Bardem and Cruz never seem more than
adolescent. I realize that's ultimately part of the point of the film,
but here it's way too obvious from minute one, not something we slowly
discover, and in turn that keeps the film from
ultimately feeling deeper and more complex.

None-the-less, a romantic bittersweet film I've enjoyed well enough to go back and re-watch.

Interestingly, even more than most of Allen's films this seems to ignite very different reactions
from viewer to viewer, so I'd encourage you to check it out for yourself
if you have any interest in the elements.

"I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night
I was cold as a stone

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for"
(U2)

Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):

1. There's Vicky (Rebecca Hall)
2. There's Cristina (Scarlett Johansson)
3. There's Barcelona (the place in Spain, with the rain on the plain)
4. There's your movie title
5. Vicky and Cristina visit Barcelona one summer
6. Vicky's engaged, Cristina still hasn't found what she's looking for
7. They find Juan (Javier Bardem, who sure cleans up nicely once he puts away that captive bolt cow stunning gun)
8. He makes them an offer they can't refuse, but for different reasons
9. Wine, dinner and Spanish guitar follow
10. Things get crazy when the gorgeous ex-wife (Penelope Cruz in a wonderful scene-stealing performance) shows up
11. They manage a ménage
12. Deux, trois, quatre - what's the difference?
13. All good things ......
14. ..... and we come to the end

This is a rich and riotous recount of romance and reckless relationships, loaded with love, lust and loathing and lastly, leaving and longing.

Recommended for fans of:
1. Woody Allen's better movies
2. Movies with narrators
3. A de-Chigurh-ed and positively smoldering Bardem
4. Muy caliente Penelope Cruz
5. That Scarlett chick

People often think that I don't have a sense of humor. This is mainly due to the fact that I don't tell jokes, and I rarely find comedies funny. Slapstick humor only works if it involves Peter Sellers, or similar genius. Most comedies are so predictable that I see the jokes coming, and they aren't very funny when they arrive. But that doesn't mean that I don't like to laugh. I look for comedy within other genres because I find that humor works better for me when it is witty, and buried within a believable situation. That's why I turn to directors like Quentin Tarantino, the Coens, Martin McDonagh, Wes Anderson, and Woody Allen when I want to laugh.

Woody Allen's humor won't work for everyone. His earlier work did contain significant amounts of physical humor and jokes, but I think he's at his best when he writes more seriously. Vicky Cristina Barcelona falls into that category. It's an examination of human nature, more than a comedy, but there are still plenty of amusing scenes.

What qualities do you find attractive in a romantic partner? Allen asks that question, and uses Vicky (Rebecca Hall) and Cristina (Scarlett Johansson) to show two very different views. Vicky seeks stability, and likes to know what to expect from her man. Cristina is more of a free spirit, and wants her partners to have a similar outlook on life. Vicky has her future carefully planned, and is due to marry, whereas Cristina is still exploring and trying to find exactly what it is she is looking for. The thing is, she isn't sure what that is.

Juan Antonio (Javier Bardem) is an artist, and boldly asks the two women to take a trip with him. He openly says that they will all make love during the trip.

I was never a huge fan of Penelope Cruz until I saw this film. She totally steals the show and her Oscar was well deserved.
