Oozes affection for its subjects, and that carries it through even the weaker character moments and the more jarring shifts of narrative and tone.

An exquisitely composed yet fiercely combative satire (set in the eighties) of European mores as seen through the eyes of two young exemplars of the American establishment.

This is fairly amusing stuff-brittle, fresh, and impudent - if you can stomach all the upscale arrogance.

Darker and more acidic than Stillman's previous outing, this comedy, about two Americans at the end of the Cold War, could be described as Metropolitan meets Where the Boys Are meets The Year of Living Dangerously.

I recommend Barcelona on the proviso that you see [Stillman's] other two films first.

A very funny cross-cultural film about some idiosyncratic people who talk about what's on their minds.

It appears at first to be about the casual lives of young men trying to launch their careers, but eventually ... it reveals darker depths and meanings.
