I kind of loathed Metropolitan. It was all so self-conscious and preppy and mannered. As art, it takes you nowhere. I never understood the fuss about it at all. Personally, I don't think you are missing much - except the mind set of a very self selected Manhattan spoiled clique. I think I liked Barcelona a little better though I remember it less.

Metropolitan is one of the little-known masterpieces of modern cinema. I had originally picked up the box back in 1991 because it had an attractive girl in the process of removing her bra in a game of strip poker. Despite the fact that the scene never appeared in the finished product, I was too much in love the film to care. I've raved about this film to anyone who was willing to listen ever since. Bout time it's on DVD.
