As part of a job that he is promised, Xavier (Romain Duris), an economics student in his twenties, signs on to a European exchange programme to gain a working knowledge of the Spanish language. Promising that they'll remain close, he says farewell to his loving girlfriend (Amelie's Audrey Tautou), then heads to Barcelona. An English girl (Kelly Reilly) and her brother (Kevin Bishop), a young woman from Belgium (Cecile de France), an Italian, a boy from Denmark, a German and a girl from Tarragona all join him in a series of adventures that serve as an initiation to life.
Excellent film. Set in Madrid where six students share a house, all different nationalities. Not annoying like a lot of Hollywood teen flicks. You feel like you are there with them sharing their lives. recommend you watch it!

Reminded me of my year out in France while I was at university
- Pot Luck review by AM
Don't think I'm the only person to do this but I watched these films in the wrong order. May be Klapisch thought some people might do this? All I can say is that this film reminded me of my year out in France while I was at university. Happy days is all I can say :-)
