Trailer Park | Vicky Cristina Barcelona

20 06 2008

In the past, we have accused the once great auteur Woody Allen of no longer making relevant films. But after watching the trailer for his upcoming film, “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” it appears that the “Woodman” may have found his second wind.

Featuring an amazing cast (Scarlett Johansson, Penelope Cruz, Patricia Clarkson and Oscar-winner Javier Bardem) and exotic Spanish location, the film appears to have rejuvenated Allen. Two girlfriends (Hall and Johansson) on a summer holiday in Spain become enamored with the same painter (Bardem), fully unaware that his ex-wife (Cruz), with whom he has a tempestuous relationship, is about to re-enter the picture.

The film also features a highly-anticipated love scene between Johansson and Cruz that has been discussed online for over a year. Starring real-life couple Cruz and Bardem, we’re willing to overlook the fact that we haven’t been big fans of some of his recent work. But if the trailer is an indication, “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” could be very interesting.

Trailer grade: B
