Maria Elena used to say that only unfulfilled love can be romantic

this is Maria Elena and well, i don't completely agree with her, but then i also believe that a relationship between lovers cannot be completely complete. there always has to be something left for them to complete, to fulfill, to strive for. otherwise, their life would become stagnant like Judy and Mark's did.

Maria Elena, if you don't know her, is the estranged ex-wife of Spanish artist Juan Antonio. they shared a bitter-sweet passionate relationship, but somehow were never able to stabilize it. then one day in a fit of jealousy, Maria Elena stabbed Juan Antonio and the marriage was more or less over.

Judy is a distant relative of Vicky who is doing her masters in 'Catalan
Studies.' the practical, traditional Vicky is soon to get married to Doug, who is a successful career minded person and brings the same business-like stability to their romantic life. quite unlike Cristina, who is Vicky's dear friend and completely unsure about what she is going to do next day, hour or moment. Vicky and Cristina have arrived on a little summer vacation to Barcelona, where the former will try to do her Catalan project and the latter will try to find out what she 'not wants' from her life. the problem is, fate, and Woody Allen have something else on their mind.
because their paths will cross with Juan Antonio and Maria Elena will later say that only unfulfilled love can be romantic.

Funny, still confusing even after the trailer... looks delightful.
But can unfulfilled still be romantic if the party has been murdered. Where did the romance go?

You have captured the confusion of the movie well in your review. I loved Penelope Cruz here!
