Vicki Cristina Barcelona review

user

Sad to say it was highly disappointing at neary every turn and was basically a high gloss low concept loser. The pict...

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...
