Went to watch Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Now that the show has come out in Singapore, time to note Woody Allen's "diary" of the shooting of the film. Always a fan of his writing. Review to come soon... but just some quick thoughts: Scarlett Johansson is a good muse for Woody, and it's good that here she's the free spirit - she was misused in Scoop and The Other Boleyn Girl, I think. Actually, everyone's well-cast: Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Rebecca Hall. And while there's no way that Allen knows the nuances of Barcelona enough to make this as much of a love letter to the city as Manhattan was to New York, it's still a beautiful, swooning paean to the charms of Catalonia.
