Letting the Fresh Air In

Vicky Christina Barcelona

Last week I went to see “
Penelope Cruz in "Vicky Maria Barcelona".

P.S. Researching this I found that Pedro Almodovar has a blog, where I read about his migraines and opinion on Penelope Cruz's hairstyle in Allen's film. Also that we share the same birthday.


It was a light romp and I enjoyed it. Then I promptly forgot about it. Except for this: Do you suppose Allen allowed (or encouraged) the narrator to say the Catalan names and places with such a miserable American pronunciation? Gowdy? Park Gwell? That was terrible!
Oh, and didn't it look as if the painters where channeling Tapies? (Or as the narrator might have said, Tap-pies.)

I find Woody Allen too offensive on all kinds of grounds, way before he became a public pariah, to want to see any of his movies, and everytime I do do end up seeing one of them, every prejudice is confirmed.

But thank you, thank you, thank you for the link to the Aldomovar blog. It's great.
