Ouch, Spiegel, Very Ouch
Well, I disagree with the Spiegel film review of Woody Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona. At the same time, the generous amount of sun we were exposed to during the summer, which is when we had a chance to watch Woody Allen's latest composite of therapy sessions, might have contributed to my mostly positive review of the film.
And since HetPer has a good number of German-speaking, -reading, and -understanding readers, I figured I would include the following sentence in the original. You may read the rest of the review here.
Am Ende wirkt "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" banal und nicht zu Ende gedacht, so orientierungslos wie seine beiden Heldinnen, die irgendwann nur noch dastehen wie Idiotinnen, deren Niederlagen der Film fast höhnisch zu feiern scheint.
