Superbly written and directed by Woody Allen, Vicky and Cristina give us thoughtful dialogue as well as character growth and evolution, while Juan Antonio satisfies our expectations as the stereotypical Latin lover who exists to gratify his senses while thrilling Vicky and Cristina, giving them more than enough material for a lifetime of memories, dreams and reflections. Penélope Cruz won a 2009 Oscar and a 2009 Goya (Spanish Oscar) for her supporting role. The film also won a 2009 Golden Globe for best picture, as well as Golden Globe nominations for Javier Bardem, Rebecca Hall and Penélope Cruz. If you are a fan of Woody Allen or any of the four leading actors, or you simply enjoy well-crafted film making, don't miss Vicky Cristina Barcelona.
