Barcelona Christmas Night Film Poster


Director: Dani de la Orden. Starring: Alberto San Juan, Montserrat Carulla, Vicky Luengo. Catalonia 2015. 95 mins. Catalan/Spanish with English Subtitles Winter in Barcelona can be magical. Romantic love is in the air, sometimes crazy, sometimes funny, sometimes bittersweet. After the success of Barcelona Summer Night, the same production team returns with six new stories set in Barcelona, this time over Christmas’ time. A few characters from the first film return but most of them are new. This time round, the stories are not only about young people and the tragicomic tone is more evident. The mixture of some risqué sexual jokes, romance and emotions will please those admirers of the work of Judd Apatow. A rare example of a sequel which is regarded as even better than the original, the film proved another box office success. Like the first film, it uses pop songs which were composed especially for the film, and not borrowed from a hit list, like it often happens with mainstream romantic comedies. CFF 15
