French filmmaker Cedric Klapisch takes the old clichs of culture clash, college roommate chaos, and a young adult's education outside the confines of the classroom and turns it into vision of the then-new European Union as communal household.

No funciona apenas como retrato da globalizao e do choque de culturas, mas tambm como a jornada pessoal de um jovem rumo definio de sua vida

Yet another example of writer/director Klapisch's way of finding fresh new insights within the most mundane of circumstances.
October 17, 2003
Klapisch has imbued the film with such energy and such insight that his themes linger on the palate, like the aftertaste of a fine French or Spanish or Italian or German or whatever wine.

It's a rarity, a comedy about young adults that does not laugh at their inexperience, and remains accessible even to old fogies.

A film whose limitations are the same as its appeal: It's a bauble.

Since for most of us, it's too late to pack a suitcase, spend a year in beautiful Barcelona, and fall so easily in and out of love, "L'Auberge Espagnole" is a lovely cinematic diversion.

It's apt to leave American viewers with a depressing sense of cultural inferiority when these characters are weighed against the classless, clueless, horny drunks that populate our own equivalents of Klapisch's film.

Think of L'Auberge Espagnole, a French comedy-drama about a gang of international exchange students living together in Barcelona, as Friends -- the International Edition.

Xavier, the movie's center, is unfortunately one of the less interesting people in L'Auberge Espagnole, but the lovable chaos that swirls about him makes up for that.

Does start off slowly and is consistently hobbled by Duris' bland performance and the equally bland character he portrays, but eventually it settles into a pleasing rhythm and mood.

It features four of the most erotically and emotionally delectable female performances I have seen in one film this year.
