The new Woody Allen film, Vicky Cristina Barcelona which was shot in Barcelona and Asturias last year will open in September and could also open the Cannes film festival.

Jaume Roures, from the Media Pro company which was one of the film’s producers, says that Barcelona looks splendid in the movie, and that those who did not know the city would be eager to do so. The movie will be shown in the city only in Catalan or in the original English version subtitled. Speaking to the RAC1 radio station he also revealed that a lesbian love scene between Penelope Cruz and Scarlett Johansson had been “greatly exaggerated.”

Woody Allen had said in July last year that he wanted the film to be a “love letter to Barcelona” presenting the city to the rest of the world “as seen through my eyes, as I have done with Manhattan.”
