Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture - Penelope Cruz

New York Daily News - Joe Neumaier: There are two stormy performances from Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz that elevate Allen's melancholy thoughts on love and relationships.

Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman: The writing is zippy, the story spins like a top, and Bardem turns out to be the wittiest of leading men.

Rolling Stone - Peter Travers: Woody Allen's sexiest movie ever.
Philadelphia Inquirer - Steven Rea: Smoking, shouting, practically shooting off sparks, Cruz spreads a wildfire sexuality across Allen's sunny tableau of Catalan country picnics and scenic Barcelona ramblings.
Variety - Todd McCarthy: Offers potent romantic fantasy elements for men and women and a cast that should produce the best commercial returns for a Woody Allen film since "Match Point."
