From watching the trailer for VICKY CRISTINA BARCELONA, one might never have guessed that it was actually an offering from prolific auteur Woody Allen. There's no New York, no sight of Allen, and his trademark wit was nowhere to be seen. But this film--with its talented cast, sharp dialogue, and excellent use of gorgeous locations--marks Allen's best comic work since 1994's BULLETS OVER BROADWAY. Vicky (Rebecca Hall) and Cristina (Scarlett Johansson) are American best friends who have the luck of spending several summer months in the Spanish city of the title. Though the pair is inseparable, they clash over love: Vicky is engaged to the trustworthy Doug (Chris Messina), while Cristina is forever in search of new experiences and passions. When a fiery Spanish painter named Juan Antonio (Javier Bardem) proposes that the three fly off to Oviedo for the weekend with the goal of making love, the women are divided, but they both eventually agree to the trip. After unexpected events in Oviedo, they return to Barcelona where Juan Antonio's obsessive ex-wife (Penelope Cruz) enters the picture.


As the rule-bound Vicky, Hall--who has been largely unknown to American audiences before this film--gives a wonderfully witty performance that keeps pace with her more famous co-stars. Those who have only seen Bardem in his Oscar-winning role as the cold killer in NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN will be surprised by his sexy turn in VICKY CRISTINA BARCELONA. Though it's often women who steam up the screen, Bardem seduces Vicky, Cristina, and the audience with such abandon that it's tough for everyone involved not to emerge a little bit smitten. Johansson, Allen's new-millennium muse, is the director's mouthpiece--she's consistently funny and more than a little neurotic, and you can hear Allen's voice in her performance.

this is a forum and on forums people talk about things... last i was told anyway :?

This film BORED the life out of me, it was complete indulgent twaddle.
2 cool chicks get it on with a cool rich hunk, all very false.

...But my girlfriend loved it.
Rated G... For girls.

Sounds like a Porno!:-D

Great film, unexpected but I really enjoyed it - bittersweet and doesn't leave any loose-ends (which made me pleased as a lot of films leave things hanging).

Pile of rubbish

Rubbish film, i'd rather gauge my eye's out with a rusty hook than watch this again! Infact that pretty consistant with most Woody Allen films...

Great film.

No idea what it was about but but Penelope and Scarlett get it on...

I'm a woody allen fan so I will buy it at some point. Last few were iffy but heard better about this.

But as you say this is a forum, if only everyone knew the vote was for the deal and not whether they like it or not. Go neutral if you dont care i suppose, but write an opinion on the product or we get a lot of cool stuff voted cold because it's not mainstream. It's maddening to see the hottest deal get voted cold just becuse it's not everyones cup of tea.
