Barcelona by Whit Stillman ( Visual )
8 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and French and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Barcelona, Spain during the last decade of the Cold War, Ted Boynton, the Spanish representative for a Chicago electric engine firm, plays host to his cousin, Fred Boynton, a lieutenant in the Navy. Ted is earnest and ambitious, but not a typical American salesman. Fred is an advance man for the Sixth Fleet's upcoming shore leave. They are smart but somewhat naive white-collar workers, who wear suits, are very serious about themselves, and who always try to sound impressive--in a senior seminar manner. The film questions the adequacy of overly civilized behavior in tough, real-world situations, the values that inform it, and the struggle to determine what those values are. In the end, this is a portrait of two capable, earnest young men destined for an imminent move into the ill-defined purgatory of middle management
