Hmm, “open-minded celebration of love in all its configurations.” Here is yet another quality work from the master existentialist filmmaker himself –Woody Allen. Always probing life and its meaning, this time with the focus on romance, or at least on relationship and it chemistry.
Schools study his work. Woody Allen is in a class by himself. Think for a moment about all the possibilities in this plot: Two American women, Vicky and Cristina, are vacationing in Barcelona. Where they meet an artist and the three quickly develop a relationship. The artist, however, is still enamored of his mentally unstable ex-wife. There you go –a plot that is wide open to all kinds of life explorations. And Woody does just that.
