Auberge espagnole, L' (The Spanish Apartment)

Barcelona, one of the cultural capitals of European new wave is the location for this MTV-ish movie. A Parisian guy spends a year in Barcelona on a student exchange programs where he shares an apartment with students from different parts of Europe. If you have shared an apartment and lives of your friends as a student or in your early adult year this is one movie you can easily empathize with. It is said that the applications for admisssions for EC's Erasmus (that is the name of the exchange program thru' which the protagonist arrives in Barcelona) program doubled after the release of this movie!
