Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Rating = B

It's entertaining, and I thought the voice over narration that some of the real critics didn't like was just fine and helpful. There are lots of talky characters in Woody Allen movies, and this one is no exception; Javier Bardem's character is particularly good as the guy with an intriguing answer for every response the young women make to his overtures (or lack of overture in one case). Woody is an impressive guy — writing and directing one more or less engaging movie after another.
