Consensus: A beguiling tragicomedy, Vicky Cristina Barcelona charms with beautiful views of the Spanish city and a marvelously well-matched cast.

When great artists maintain their health and energy into their 70s, amazing things can happen -- and they're happening with Woody Allen.

Allen seems uninterested in pushing his material beyond impersonally generic, or even in thinking things through.

It's a shift in tone for Allen; it's still a movie about sex and those who seek it, but it's hung on a sun-blushed, wine-sploshed Spanish love triangle that's more appealing and more amorous than anything the director has produced in decades.

I couldn't imagine better company than Vicky, Cristina and Woody on a relaxing summer day.

Although Penelope Cruz's performance is amusing, the film feels a bit forced, looking for meaning in Spain where there may not be any.

An interesting attempt at trying to explain the many different ways we all convey a single, complex emotion. Warm and heartfelt, but nothing mind blowing.… More

My favorite of the late period Allen films.

This is a beautiful tragicomedy, that shows off one of Spain's most beautiful cities, and also features bravura performances from the whole cast, but it… More
