"Vicky Cristina Barcelona", Woody Allen's latest feature film project has become one of the official selection movies in the 2008 Cannes Film Festival. It has been hailed to be a funny movie and the sexiest of all Allen's works. Now, one can judge by oneself whether the claims hold some truth with the release of the movie's official trailer.
Outed by The Weinstein Company earlier, the video footage promoting the tidbit provides viewers with a deeper look into the storyline than the previously released promo trailer. Though it shows lesser raunchy scenes than the promo video, this new trailer exposes how Juan Antonio played by Javier Bardem seduces Vicky and Cristina depicted by Rebecca Hall and Scarlett Johansson respectively and be successful in it. It also displays the intricate relationship between Juan and his former wife Maria Elena portrayed by Penelope Cruz, who still has deep feeling toward her ex, as well as the complication coming along with the four characters' entangled relationship.
Coming from the creator of "Annie Hall" and "Match Point", "Barcelona" is a drama romantic comedy about two young American women spending their summer holiday in Barcelona where they meet a charming local painter who still maintains an emotional relationship with his gorgeous but crazy ex-wife. Soon, all of them are entangled romantically to one another and create a situation described simply as chaotic. The film is set for August 15 release.
