3.0 out of 5 stars Saved by Penélpe Cruz, 11 Aug. 2013

This review is from: Vicky Cristina Barcelona [DVD] (DVD)
Vicky Cristina Barcelona doesn't feel like a story with a beginning, a middle and an end more like a film that has characters meet at the beginning of the film, events occur in the middle (and possibly 99% of the film), and then the characters depart at the end of the film.

A film can work like that and this one does. Powerful performances from the two Spanish leads (Javier Bardem and Penélpe Cruz) if perhaps weaker performances from the two non-Spanish leads (Scarlett Johansson and Rebecca Hall).

Penélpe Cruz's performance won an Oscar and a BAFTA for best supporting actress. These awards were well deserved and it is Cruz who makes this film worthwile.
