L’auberge espagnole

 
I’m French, Spanish, English, Danish. I’m not one, but many.
 I’m like Europe, I’m all that. I’m a real mess

But his accommodations are canceled and he takes a room in l’Auberge Espagnole, an inn which already houses a cultural stew of Europeans from France, Belgium, Spain, England and Denmark.

One of the greatest european movie that I see lately. Original and fun, have beatiful pictures of this, my city and not falls into the clichés of españa y olé! Furthermore, treat the catalan reality as it is, waht never happens in a foreing film that happens in Barcelona.

Finally, the movie makes would like to live the experiences of going to live abroad (I’ll do the next year, I’ll go to London), a difficult but rewarding experience, as the movie slogan says a year can change a lifetime.

This movie have a second part where all the people taht met in Barcelona, meet again in some european cities, I want to see but I never encounter, Les Poupées Russes, someday I’ll watch it.
