Vicky, Cristina, Barcelona

When Carol Wright got in touch with me about recreating this scene. I was very excited, it’s one of my favourite films. So here we have it. Shot at the back of the cafe in Pearson Park on a cold day in January, andwiched between Julie Andrews in the Sound of Music and Made in Dagenham we have Vicky, Cristina, Barcelona.
The story in a nutshell is that Americans Vicky (Rebecca Hall) and Cristina (Scarlett Johansson) arrive in Spain for a summer vacation at a friend’s (Patricia Clarkson) Barcelona home. Visiting an art gallery, they meet seductive painter Juan Antonio (Javier Bardem), who invites them for a weekend of food, art and sex. Sparks really ignite when his fiery former lover (Penélope Cruz) arrives on the scene, making for a very crowded house.
