Product Description

Product Description

Inter-European rites-of-passage comedy drama about seven students of different nationalities sharing a flat in Barcelona. Romain Duris stars as Xavier, a French economics student who, through a connection of his father's, is offered a good job at the Ministry of Finance on the condition that he learns Spanish. He immediately enrols on a language programme in Barcelona, despite the misgivings of his girlfriend, Martine (Audrey Tautou, star of 'Amelie') and moves into 'l'auberge Espagnole' (the Spanish apartment), where the diverse personalities of his fellow housemates change his life forever. The film premiered at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival.

The ERASMUS-SOCRATES scheme is where students have the oppurtunity to study abroad for a year - this film is the first to portray the legendary lifestyle that ERASMUS students have (and quite accurately). The film's sub-plot follows a Parisien student who decides to study in Barcelona for a year. His personal experiences give the film much of the substance, but much of the film also focuses upon the other people (mainly ERASMUS students) that he meets (and lives with) - their stereotypes brilliantly portrayed. One aspect making this film pretty unique is that the spoken language changes continuously from French to English to Spanish. Combined with serious aspects that come with leaving home for a year, are many comical parts too, making this film one to watch. And as it did for me, it will bring back many fond memories to all those people who did ERASMUS, reminding them of what was probably one of the best years of their lives...

L'Auberge Espagnol is a feel-good movie with a European flavour. Following the steps of a French student in Barcelona, the viewer is transported into the world of student living as part of the ERASMUS student exchange programme. The trials and tribulations of a group of students from various European backgrounds are genuinely portrayed as they spend a year in the beautiful Catalan city. Audrey Tautou, although the main face and name of the movie actually only plays a minor role. Nonetheless, this movie is recommended to anyone who would like to see European cinema with a youthful twist, as well as anyone interested to see how ERASMUS may broaden a student's horizons and promote a common feeling of unity amongst citizen members of the EU.

This film is a must for any ERASMUS student either past, current or prospective.

As already mentioned, the film acurately portrays the steryotypes of the various nationalities, and with it being in three languages, and with a mix of so many cultures, it works for everyone. I just watched it (in french) the other night with two other english people, a german and a chetch, and we all loved it.

"L'Auberge Espagnole" allows us to see what happens in a year in the life of Xavier (Romain Duris), a young man from France who has been promised a job in the French bureaucracy if he is fluent in Spanish. Thus, he applies to the Erasmus programme, in order to study in Barcelona (Spain) for a year.

Xavier leaves his parents and his girlfriend Martine (Audrey Tautou) behind, but he meets lots of new people and survives to cultural shock. He also starts an affair with the lonely wife of another Frenchman, and goes to Economy classes at the university. But what will charm the viewer is the chaotic life Xavier will have in the apartment he will share with other foreign students. In a way, the apartment is a little piece of the European Union, with people from Italy, Germany, Denmark, Belgium, Spain and France. Of course, there are lots of linguistic misunderstandings, but also an enormous amount of amusing situations and good-natured fun.

I specially appreciated the fact that the scriptwriter and the director (Cedric Klapisch) managed to convey many of the phases a foreign student goes through. For example, when Xavier says that "When you first arrive in a new city, nothing makes sense", but "After you've lived here, walked these streets, you'll know them inside out. You'll know these people. Once you've lived here, crossed this street 10, 20, 1000 times... it'll belong to you because you've lived there".

At the end, Xavier learns Spanish, but also about friendships, relationships and himself. In a way, watching this movie will allow you to be "there" with him throughout the whole process. And truth to be told, that is many things but never boring. Give this movie a try, I promise it is fun :)

I watched this with high expectations as many people had told me it was a great film. However, I didn't expect it to be as brilliant as it was. Its funny, moving and transporting and shows Barcelona in its best light - through the youth and diversity of the city. So many uni/ twenty-something films are often slightly cringeworthy and the characters really stereotypical but this film managed to be fresh and funny and allow you to really connect with the characters - Xavier in particular. I loved the subtle but believable tensions between the characters. There wasn't anyone that really let the film down - although the English brother did get on my nerves I have to say! Its a vibrant, fun and uplifting film and one that will inspire you to get out there and travel more! I highly recommend it.

Format: DVD
This is a friendly, quite fun film that explores European identity and young people getting along - or at least trying to. I'm writing this is as an older person who was never been a student, but was that age, once.

Xavier (Romain Duras), a Parisian who wants to study Economics, goes on an exchange programme to Barcelona and the film charts his successes - and failures - along the way. There's everything from change of language, that Catalan is spoken instead of Spanish at his University and of, course, finding accommodation - that scourge of all students.

When he does finally find somewhere, it's already populated by an assortment of students each from a different country (I think!), including an English girl from London, Kelly Reilly, who happens to end up doing most of the housework. This naturally conjures up the expected sort of mischiefs and misunderstandings, humorous rather than hilarious, more real life than made up comedy. It's during these nicely scatty and warm interludes when the film shines brightest.

Some have accused the individual relationships of both Xavier and Wendy (Reilly) of weakening the strength of the story, but I disagree. They add to the movie's 2 hour length, admittedly and as since both play away from home, so to speak, there's some twists and turns. I enjoyed Xavier's more, partly because his French girlfriend that he leaves behind is the amazingly gorgeous Audrey Tatou (a great excuse to watch the film) and the girl he gets to know intimately, from when she suffers a dizzy spell high up on the Church of Sagrada Familia, the equally lovely Cecile de France, who happens to be married to a neurosurgeon.

Many parts are akin to a backpacker's guide, with lots of street scenes and stuff, which are nice to look at, of course.
