Christina Vicky Barcelona

The moment the movie finished I wanted to watch it AGAIN!!

Also fell in love with a band call Giulia y los Tellarini, who composed the song Barcelona:

How this band get under Woody Allen's radar -
Giulia y los Tellarini’s first album, “Eusebio,” was released on iTunes in late May. Its music came to Allen’s attention last year during filming, when the girlfriend of one of the band members left a CD with some of the group’s songs on it at the director’s Barcelona hotel, the fashionable Hotel D’Arts.

“I didn’t even know about it,” recalls Tellarini, who was dubious when she checked the band’s MySpace mail one day and found a message from someone in Allen’s camp who was urgently trying to reach them. “I thought it was a joke. I didn’t think that something like this could happen.”
Woody Allen also said -
People send me music all the time, but I rarely get a chance to listen to anything. One morning, as I was running out to go to the set, I grabbed it without even opening it and listened to it in the car on the way to the location. And I said, "Hey, this is great! This is exactly what I want for the movie!" And it worked out well for everyone. They were grateful we were using their music, and my producer was happy that we weren't using something that would cost a lot of money like a George Gershwin song!
What a cute little story!! You can check out the band's song at their myspace.
