‘Vicky Cristina Barcelona’ 2008

Vicky and Cristina, these two young Americans spend a summer in Spain and meet a flamboyant artist and his beautiful but insane ex-wife. Vicky is straight-laced and about to be married. Cristina is a sexually adventurous free spirit. When they all become amorously entangled, both comedic and harrowing results ensue.

“Vicky Cristina Barcelona” is typical of a lot Woody Allan’s mid-range work. It involves affluent characters at various levels of sophistication, involved in the arts and the intrigues of love. They’re conflicted about right and wrong. They’re undoubtedly low-level neurotics. In addition, they are attractive, amusing and living lives we might envy — in this case, during a summer vacation in Barcelona.
