I'm not usually a Woody Allen fan, but I did enjoy Vicky Cristina Barcelona. It is a great insight into the sights, sound, and personality of Barcelona.
I visited Barcelona in 2005 with 2 friends, and unfortunately the Spanish city didn't make a great first impression on me. We had hoped for a vacation from our vacation - a few days sunning on the beach, and left disgruntled after 3 days of straight rain. We did however, have an opportunity to tour the amazing Gaudi architecture, which this movie effectively captured.
Now, after seeing this film, I want to go back, devour some paella, take a stroll down through Parque Guell, and make that second impression a lasting one...
