I don't get it.
I went to look at the reviews of Vicky Cristina Barcelona after finally seeing it, trying to figure out what I missed. Apparently what I missed is that the film is a comedy.
Where's the funny?
The script is really weak (I don't understand all the nominations and awards it got). The acting is quite good, and it's beautifully shot, but that's about all I can say for it. The characters do not at all seem real and seem to have no motivations for doing anything they choose to do in the movie. It also has perhaps the least satisfying ending of any Woody Allen film, although to be honest the film lost me long before that point.
