Spanish Apartment, The


aka: L'Auberge Espagnole
France / Spain 2002, 117 minutes
Dir. Cedric Klapisch
In French, Spanish, English with English subtitles
Rating: [M]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Comedy / Youth, Romance


Aroview: Summery comedy set in a Barcelona apartment, where six international exchange students variously mingle, cavort and fall messily in love.

Although accomodating more than a few Euro-cliches in its characters, this still manages to evoke a whimsical, frothy and diverting vision of youth. Edges towards screwball comedy at times, with the Catalan exoticism of its setting providing a great backdrop.

Followed by sequels Russian Dolls & Chinese Puzzle
