Living the Good Life

Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Posted by on Feb 20, 2009 in Movies & TV | 8 comments



Reason why I watched the film:

1. It was shot in Barcelona

2. I love Penelope Cruz

I love all of her movies (Vanilla Sky and Woman on Top) She just adds flavor to the movie.  She’s always the accent of the movie.  In this movie, she portrayed a really crazy role and she’s the woman for it!

 3. I appreciate art, literature and humanities.

Love it? Hate it?
Absolutely lurrrv it! Very witty lines and great casting! I really enjoyed the intellectual jokes that might not be as funny to some other people but I really found myself laughing out loud.

This movie introduced me to the works of Woody Allen (writer and director) and for now, I’m a fan!

Watching the movie makes me want to travel to Barcelona and see for myself the works of Gaudi.

Verdict: Highly Recommended

Vicky – Rebecca Hall
Cristina – Scarlett Johansonn
Maria Elena – Penelope Cruz
Juan Antonio Gonzalo – Javier Bardem


There’s just something about these memorable quotes from Vicky Cristina Barcelona that will forever be embedded in my heart 🙂

Vicky Cristina Barcelona Quotes:

You’re still searching for me in every woman. 

Only unfulfilled love can be romantic.

A world that has not learned how to love does not deserve my art.

I’ll go to your room, but you’ll have to seduce me.

We are meant for each other and not meant for each other. It’s a contradiction.

The trick is to enjoy life, accepting it has no meaning whatsoever.

  1. she won best supporting at the oscars! i really wanted to watch this movie, just haven’t had the time. perhaps i’ll borrow a dvd soon. 🙂

  2. i heard that there’s a some kind of ART Stuff in the film.

    Is the film great? may some sort of Nude Painting b? haha! just kidding.

  3. Yes, watching these genres on big screen would not usually make much of a difference if you just borrow dvd and watch it at home ^_^

  4. Haha, yes there is a whole lot of ART! and nope no nude painting but some sexy scene with Scarlett and Penelope ^_^ watch it nalang, overall the movie’s just witty for me

  5. i was completely taken by the movie, the way i always am with all woody allen works. i hope you get to like his other classics like annie hall and manhattan. and if you like reading books, try to get your hands on his stories.

  6. I honestly don’t know who woody allen is until I saw this movie. I am not really a literary person but this movie really moved me and converted me to a woody allen fan 🙂


  1. Rihanna and Chris Brown’s sex tape at Flair Candy V3.0 - [...] this a passionate love like the one in Vicky Cristina Barcelona?  I quote a line in Woody Allen’s works…
