Like shipwrecked sailors awaiting the return of the hero sent for help, comedy-deprived moviegoers are desperate for the return of the old Woody Allen, the one who made them laugh. Each new Allen film is frantically examined as soon as it appears on the horizon: "Is that him? Is he back? Please, God, let him be back." This frenetic searching has been going on for so long that Allen spoofed it in 1980's "Stardust Memories," having aliens from outer space yearn for "the early, funny ones."

Penelope Cruz, making her first public appearance in her native Spain since she won an Academy Award last month, told reporters Friday that the gold statue she received for "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" had made the trip with her from her home in California. "The Oscar has come with me to Spain, and I am going to leave it here," she told a news conference in Madrid to promote her new film with frequent collaborator Pedro Almodovar, "Los Abrazos Rotos" (Broken Embraces). "For now, I have no idea what this award is going to mean for me."

It's nearly an hour into Woody Allen's golden-hued comedy of desire "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" when Penelope Cruz shows up as Javier Bardem's passionately unhinged ex-wife Maria Elena, a life-is-art-and-vice-versa firecracker. It takes only seconds for the Spanish siren to shake up the molecules in the film's breezily romantic air with her confrontations and seductions. One bloc of moviegoers particularly entranced by Cruz was academy voters, who nominated her for supporting actress.
