Chicks are wacko, I swear.
This is a very good film on so many levels. Mostly, because it is such a memory-inducing film for me and I suspect for many.
Xavier (Romain Duris) is a French grad student going to Barcelona to learn economics and Spanish to be more competitive in the new European job market. Sadly, he left behind his girlfriend (Audrey Tautou) and family to seek new learning. His first words on arriving are prophetic: Xavier: When you first arrive in a new city, nothing makes sense. Everything’s unknown, virgin… After you’ve lived here, walked these streets, you’ll know them inside out. You’ll know these people. Once you’ve lived here, crossed this street 10, 20, 1000 times… it’ll belong to you because you’ve lived there. That was about to happen to me, but I didn’t know it yet.
As one who has absorbed dozens of new cities in Europe and the US, I can immediately relate. There is an anxiety that cannot be described that will only subside when you are fully immersed in the culture. Xavier did that and it changed his life. It can only be felt by someone who leaves the protection of their life and culture as he did.
But, he had fun doing it. He made friends with Isabelle (Cécile De France), a lesbian that taught him about women, which came in handy with Anne-Sophie (Judith Godrèche), with whom he was having an adulterous liaison. He mixed with German, Dutch, Spanish, and English – even Wendy’s (Kelly Reilly) obnoxious brother (Kevin Bishop), who really saved the day for his sister.
All-in-all a very funny coming of age comedy with a European twist that made it a delight.
Great authentic movie about student life
This is a very well done film showing the life of international students during their “Erasmus year” in Barcelona which by the way is one of the most beautiful towns in Europe and is an ideal location.
The idea itself with all the different languages is great and gives the film an original atmosphere. There are some clichés about the countries but most of them are true! The characters could not better represent their different countries.
Having experienced “Erasmus” on myself during my exchang semester in Italy I can say that is movie is incredibly authentic. I had many experiences which were similar to the characters (except I didn’t get laid as often). The movie is also quite funny yet not like all those stupid American college movies.
Finally the movie touches also some important issues like the change from student to work life.
9/10 (I may not be very objective though)
