Just want to express my absolute adoration for what I call a refreshingly dreamy kind of Woody Allen flick for the "acquired taste." The artistic aspiration (for which I couldn't get enough of) in the making of this film is strongly evident, offering up a breathtaking, postcard perfect scenic view of Spain, paired with a kind of "sensual lushness" that makes the idea of traveling through Barcelona so intoxicating - yeeaah, that's how deep this film was for me, can ya tell?!
On another lovely note, the story smoothly develops into an intriguing portrait of the boundless scenarios in which love and true happiness can be found, which I really appreciated and could personally identify with in a sense.This flick has been out for a number of months already but for anyone who hasn't seen it yet, I highly recommend! Also, Penelope Cruz's flawless performance as the intensely volatile, yet insanely beautiful Maria Elena was by far my favorite bit. All these elements combined with an abundance of sexy Spanish artworks, famous Gaudi architecture, and let's not forget the chill, laidback styling of each character (esp. Cruz's!) make for a perfect summer must-see!
Phew! I ♥ it.
