When others know you better than you do

I have added a portrait of Penelope Cruz today because I recently watched the film “Vicky Cristina Barcelona.” I had not heard of the film to be honest and my wife persuaded me to watch. I was not particularly interested until Penelope Cruz came into the film and quite literally stole the show. Her performance was quite breathtaking. She had me laughing out loud with her performance of a love sick ex lover of an artist played by Javier Bardem.

Now Javier Bardem is quite a hero of mine, I think he is a wonderful actor with an incredible screen presence but his performance with Penelope Cruz in this film is just poetic. The rhythm and chemistry of the performance is captivating. I love it when a film surprises you and this one certainly did that. My wife told me I would like it before I started watching, I guess by know I should know that she knows me better than I know myself! Have a creative day.

  1. I can believe that they had great chemistry on screen because I believe that they were married in real life last year and might have been just falling in love when they made the movie you saw. πŸ™‚ I’m not sure what’s up with my computer today…I know dial up is slow but for some reasons the images aren’t opening so I can’t tell you which ones I like the most! 😦


  2. Yes I think you are right about them falling in love during the filming. Have you seen the movie? As for the pictures, that sometimes happens with me as well. Don’t worry there will be more tomorrow πŸ™‚

    take care Alan.


  3. hmm will look for that movie.
    a wife knows best her husband because she sees the reality whereas the husband sees fantasy.lol.
    and that WHY NOT art is fitting for relationship..
    WHY NOT try to see the partner’s perspective instead of wanting to be right all the time?
    have a great day!


    1. You have to watch the movie!!! It’s wonderful. An emotional journey with lots to put a smile on your face πŸ™‚

      I agree I always try and see my wife’s point of view, She’s usually right most of the time anyway!

      take care Alan.


      1. Alan, you officialy gave me the first loud laugh for the day — your wife being right most of the time! If she’s reading this, you made her extra happy! lol


  4. Hey, I remember this flick. I did find this movie entertaining and skillful, funny and full of insight. However, Woody remains gifted at scaring the begeezus out of me… and any thoughts I had of monogamy or marriage. How frightening! πŸ™‚


    1. Yeah Woody is a strange guy and I have to be honest although I think the guy is very talented he freaks me out as well!

      Thanks Seth, take care Alan.
