Woody Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona review

user
Occasionally endearingly audacious, Woody Allen's screenplay for Vicky Cristina Barcelona is a further riff on the unique, unpredictable nature of romantic relationships among the human race. His observation of the female characters (and not just the leads) is spot on and is the engine for the dramatic core of the story. And a good story it is: jostled along by their differences, Vicky (Rebecca Hall) and Cristina (Scarlett Johansson) take us into the undulating world of female friendship when it...

Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Penelope Cruz fans were angered at the premiere of her new movie Vicky Christina Bobby. After some waited almost in hour in the rain, they were not even allowed to watch the Woody Allen directed feature with the cast in attendance. Upon entering the Grand Théâtre Lumière, attendees were directed up the stairs and right out the theatre! They were then taken to an adjacent theatre to see the movie. The funny thing is that not only were “regular” people ushered out, but also famous people li...

What were your fears as you set about making a film of a supposedly ‘unfilmable' book?   "The biggest thing was that it was a sacred text. And with Gabriel Garcia Marquez there are people who cannot possibly have known him who call him by his diminutive Christian name - he's known as ‘Gabo' - so there's a  kind of possessiveness which is very daunting.
