Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Prolific and neurotic director Woody Allen (Annie Hall, Manhattan) goes wildly romantic in his latest flick, set in Barcelona. Two young Americans, Vicky (Hall) and Cristina (Johansson) meet a flamboyant artist (Bardem) and his beautiful wack-job of an ex-wife (Penelope Cruz, in her 2009 Oscar winning role). Vicky is very well behaved, as she is about to be married. Cristina on the other hand, is described in press notes as "a sexually adventurous free spirit". When they all become amorously entangled, things get chaotic.

Vicky Cristina Barcelona / Reviews

Legendary writer/director Woody Allen presents audiences with his most accessible production of recent times. The titular Vicky and Cristina are a pair of American tourists enjoying a summer holiday in Spain when an encounter with a passionate, in every sense of the word, local artist and his ex-wife turns their love lives upside down.

Offers potent romantic fantasy elements for men and women and a cast that should produce the best commercial returns for a Woody Allen film since "Match Point."

The film's freedom and control, its inspiration and focus, announce it as the work of a confident and mature artist.

It's literally difficult to believe that the person who made this picturesque, clueless, oddly misanthropic picture also made "Annie Hall" and "Crimes and Misdemeanors."

Sexy, funny, and undeniable European, this has to be my favourite Woody Allen of recent years.

Bardem's performance is so good it tends to mask how lacking much of what surrounds it is.

Let's not kid ourselves: There's something about Javi.
