“Vicky Cristina Barcelona”; Barcelona Was Great, Vicky Cristina Not So Much

The only reason why I am writing about this movie is due to the city of Barcelona. I did not find the movie very good, but I have fallen in for Barcelona. To me the movie was average, with multiple girls falling in out for the painter and not being sure of what they exactly want.

This is one of those movies where the end is not really an end to a story. But the movie portrays some particular time in the life of characters and then let the characters drive the narration with no specific end in mind. Sometimes such a movie can be great but I did not find it to be that good.

On the other hand, the filming of Barcelona is good. I liked the rugged look of the houses and the simple life that is shown in the movie. Somehow it felt that if we could have an ideal Indian coastal village, it will probably look very similar.
