Movies about Barcelona

Want to get revved up for your visit to Barcelona? Two great Barcelona movies have come out in recent years, both worth seeing for the landscapes, people and stories they portray.

pedro almodovar

The first, "Todo Sobre Mi Madre" or "All About My Mother," by revered Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar, follows a mother on her journey to find the father of her child in Barcelona -- but it's not nearly as simple as all that. This Barcelona movie won the Best Foreign Film Oscar in 2000.

"L'Auberge Espagnol," a French film released in 2002, brings together an eclectic group of Erasmus students in a Barcelona flat. Any expat or study abroad-er will relate to the kooky trials and cultural tribulations of the film's young characters as they get to know the city and meet people from all over the world.
