Vicky Cristina Barcelona Reviews

Ali Gray
TheShiznit.co.uk

It's a shift in tone for Allen; it's still a movie about sex and those who seek it, but it's hung on a sun-blushed, wine-sploshed Spanish love triangle that's more appealing and more amorous than anything the director has produced in decades.

Matt's Movie Reviews

Vicky Cristina Barcelona is Allen's an ode to unrestrictive love, and a commentary on sex and how it speaks to different people. Yet its charm and beauty is undercut by a stinging cynicism.

Allen has definitely made something special with this charming, light and warm romantic comedy.

Interesting characters interact in a complex tangle of interesting relationships.

This time, the words really should be believed: a massive return to form for Woody Allen. No lie. At this rate, we might even forgive him for Cassandra's Dream.

Times [UK]

For all its meditations on romantic disappointments, this is a slight, sunny film. Anyone in need of some superior escapism should see it straightaway.

Observer [UK]

Woody Allen's new film, announced as a romantic comedy, is far superior to the disastrous Match Point and Cassandra's Dream but much inferior to his best work.

By the time Cruz appears, Vicky Cristina Barcelona has delivered on those initial good omens: it's Allen's best film in at least a decade.

Allen's last couple of movies have been far from vintage offerings but Vicky Cristina Barcelona is pure pleasure and finds him back on form. It is smart, sunny, frisky and extremely funny.

Vicky Cristina Barcelona, which Allen wrote and directed but did not act in, is Woody at the top of his game.

Slight, disposable but entertaining. Vicky Cristina Barcelona is an awful lot better than anything in his thankfully short "British" period.

Daily Telegraph

Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Woody Allen's latest comeback, is nothing like the return to form his apologists claim, but it's not terrible, which is a mercy after his grim trio of British projects.

Jonathan Crocker
Little White Lies

No doubt about it, Allen's latest throwaway rom-com is utterly silly, forgettable and predictable. It's also his most purely entertaining film in years.

David Edwards
Daily Mirror [UK]

A sun-speckled slice of froth that's very watchable, although it reveals little new about the mysteries of the human heart. It may be Allen's best film in years - just don't expect Annie Hall.

Cruz's best role yet. Scarlett and Penelope end up snogging in a photographic dark room. Which just about tips VCB up to four hats.

Within Allen's recent output, Vicky Cristina is the highlight. See it for beautiful locales, an ambivalent look at human relationships and a clutch of great performances, especially from Cruz.
