Vicky Cristina Barcelona isn't exactly a comedy, at least not in the manner of Allen's "early, funny ones," but it's informed by a rueful wit that finds its fullest expression in reflective voiceover commentary. Spoken by Christopher Evan Welch, but surely on behalf of the 73-year-old auteur, this element of the film is neither (as some have charged) patronizing nor uncinematic; rather, it's integral to the movie's participation in a venerable European literary tradition, the sentimental education. Instead of Bergman or Fellini, this time Allen is invoking the François Truffaut of Jules and Jim and Eric Rohmer in his many meditations on the game of love. The entire cast is terrific (both Hall and Johansson get to play "the Woody part" at different points), with Bardem and Cruz especially delightful as exemplars of Old Worldliness. Cinematographer Javier Aguirresarobe honors every drop of Catalonian sunlight and glint of Gaudí architecture. --Richard T. Jameson

Interesting story, good acting and great scenery and music.
Once the characters all get to " do" each other the movie ends leaving you wondering why he made the film and why you wasted your time watching it.
Typical Woody Allen movie, very conversational with a beautiful city as a back drop almost being one of the characters.

I can totally relate to this story and enjoyed reminiscing upon my youth. Woody Allen has such a way in bringing reality to his work. Read morePublished 10 days ago by Digitalingrid

The only special feature on here is the original theatrical trailer, but I don't know if you can even call this a special feature.

Don't drink the water when you tour Spain and keep away from cheap group bus tours that have a national meal on the menu with whole crayfish on your plate. And of course, if approached by strangers in search of amor make sure your money is hidden in your belt and is still there afterwards. At... Read More
