Summary note
Vicky is a smart, sensible brunette. Cristina is an amorous, freethinking blonde. They've just arrived in Barcelona, where they will be spending the summer. Sultry Spanish painter Juan Antonio introduces himself and immediately offers to whisk them away for a weekend of sightseeing and threesomes. But there is an ex-wife, who soon appears. Maria Elena is wildly beautiful, wildly brilliant, wildly moody, and wildly wild. There is wine, melancholy music, soulful talk of art and emotions and tales tempestuous relationships. The city is magnificent, and everybody finishes the summer a little wiser and with a lifetime of memories. What more could you ask?
