The Netflix film ‘Crazy About Her’ is a romantic comedy directed by Dani de la Orden (‘Elite’). The story of the film is both bizarre and romantic, depending on which end of the romanticism spectrum you fall. Nonetheless, the film has all the ingredients of a feel-good rom-com and makes for an enjoyable watch.
The premise is simple – Adri, a carefree and optimistic bachelor, bumps into Carla, an impulsive girl living with type 1 bipolar disorder. They flirt, agree to spend the night together, and forget about each other in the morning. They have the best night of their life in Barcelona’s streets and part ways the next morning.
All as planned, right? Except Adri has developed feelings for Carla and sets out to express his love for her. The problem, however, is that Carla lives in a psychiatric center. Adri realizes the only way to see her is to get admitted to the facility as a patient. Naturally, a lot of the film takes place within the premises of the psychiatric facility. Still, whenever the story does get a chance to venture into the world outside the facility, it showcases some beautiful locations. Here are the filming locations of ‘Crazy About Her’; take a look.
