Vicky Cristina Barcelona

“Love requires such a perfect balance. It’s… like the human body. It may turn that you have all the vitamins and minerals, but if… there is a single, tiny ingredient… missing, one dies.”

What I love about Woody Allen is that he knows exactly what he wants, be it actors, locations, music or emotion and this clarity also reflects in his movies. His characters are simple yet unique and the actors always seem to fit in those characters.

The movie is a nice depiction of emotional conflict but it doesn’t feel too intense. It remains a light and enjoyable throughout. The combination of music and location adds another dimension to the movie. The cinematography and direction worked out really well together. The screenplay was smooth, not much of twists and turns. When I say that, I mean that the behaviour of the characters was predictable so there was nothing unexpected.

This movie is one of Allen’s better ones. If you’ve loved his other films like Midnight in Paris, Annie Hall, Cafe Society etc., you’ll surely love this one. Otherwise too, this makes for a good watch.

IMDb-“Two girlfriends on a summer holiday in Spain become enamored with the same painter, unaware that his ex-wife, with whom he has a tempestuous relationship, is about to re-enter the picture.”
