Allen was treated as cinema royalty when he came to San Sebastian in 2004 to present fest opener “Melinda and Melinda.”

Produced by Mediapro and Gravier Prods., with Antena 3 Films, “Vicky” bows in Spain Sept. 19, a day after its San Sebastian screening.

Exhibs tip it to become the highest-grossing Spanish film in Spain this year.
