Vicky Cristina Barcelona (dir. Woody Allen 2008)

This is the entire film, just in case. Couldn't find actual clip, but it can be seen at 1:35 of screen time until 3:17.

Woody Allen has us believing this film will be conventionally told via conventional camera techniques. He begins with an establishing shot that becomes a tracking shot. We then get a point of view shot from the taxi. However, once the narration starts, (which is also unexpected) in a documentary style voice, the screen splits and we see these characters, as well as this film, completely differently.
