Writer-director Woody Allen’s Golden Globe-winning ?romantic comedy Vicky Cristina Barcelona is a shimmering ode to European roundelays, as Javier Bardem cycles through seductions of Scarlett Johansson and Rebecca Hall in glowing Barcelona. Bardem is a Spanish painter with a lust for spontaneity, while Johansson and Hall are American best friends caught up in a swirl of flirtations, wine, ?and a culture that slows down their New York City rhythms and speeds up their hearts. If the women are Allen stock ?figures — ditzy beauties with brains — Bardem and Penélope Cruz, playing the painter’s emotional ex-wife, break free ? of Allen’s tight script to give lush, ripe performances on this no-extras DVD.
