Vicky Cristina Barcelona
The movie shares a unique atmosphere. Shooting it in Barcelona is one of the reasons why it makes it so beautiful. A magic city to visit during the warm season. Another aspect of the movie I enjoyed was the music- Soundtrack. The moment I will find myself in Barcelona, I plan to find a cafe to sit at, as Vicky and Juan Antonio did, and listen to the Spanish Guitar with a glass of wine in my hand.
Better than I ever could The New York Times says about the comedy-drama, "Although Vicky Cristina trips along winningly, carried by the beauty of its locations and stars — and all the gauzy romanticism those enchanted places and people imply — it reverberates with implacable melancholy, a sense of loss." The sense of loss is what makes the movie more intense, it addresses issues life carries with it. In my simple mind I translated it into, "when one door opens another one has to close, and vice versa." We cannot have it all, and letting go of a period in our life, whether childhood, trip abroad letting go of people we love can be tragic.
