Despite my new high-powered role I still have time to watch films and TV shows on my bed with the girls. The other night we watched Vicky Christina Barcelona. A great film and how beautiful is Scarlett? Luminously beautiful I thought.
“Did you see,” asked Olivia afterwards, “that all three of them kissed and went to bed together?”
“I did,” I replied, trying to sound casual, slightly mortified that she had noticed. “Most unusual, wasn’t it?”
“It’s called triplets,” she explained confidently. “It happens a lot in New York.”
So now I know……

A gem of a film. I love all his work, including the darker, more complex pieces. (Have you seen Celebrity?) Though Manhattan is without rival my desert island film.
Oh that’s cute 🙂 I haven’t heard of that movie, but it could be because I have no time to do anything but school and work!
Hi Amber (Helena, I hope it’s OK to correspond with another poster via the blog?). You live in the US? It’s just that those of us outside – especially Europeans – have long been under the impression that Allen’s films are more popular outside the US than in, which may account for the fact that you haven’t heard of Vicky Christina.
Vicky Cristina Barcelona is something that definitely divides couples… We were watching it the other day with my husband, and the conversation went a bit like this:
Me: What a wonderful movie.
Hubby: What? This? Are you serious?
Me: Lovely smooth atmosphere.
Hubby: Dear Lord, this is wannabe-artistic-crap.
Me: Isn’t Barcelona beautiful?
Hubby: It’s ok. But don’t expect these Javier Bardem-like painters to pop up and ask you to sleep with them.
Me: And Scarlett and Penelope, both amazing. I almost understand the attraction of threesome.
Hubby: Penelope? This creepy woman, clearly with some serious issues.
On and on and on…
