MON­DAY VICKY CRISTINA BARCELONA

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

1.25AM, SBS2 ★★★★

Set the DVR for this one un­less you’re an ex­treme night owl. A lively com­edy of man­ners, morals and mis­chief from film­maker Woody Allen. Scar­lett Jo­hans­son and Re­becca Hall star as two young Amer­i­can tourists who fall un­der the spell of a se­duc­tive artist (Javier Bar­dem) dur­ing sum­mer hol­i­days in the Span­ish cap­i­tal. This is Allen’s most laid­back movie in mem­ory, but the re­laxed, care­free vibe does not blunt the edge of the hu­mour. The city of Barcelona is a de­light to gaze at through­out, too. Fine view­ing.
