MISTY & MARIVAUX. This Woody ALLEN film is like a walk with a friend. We let ourselves be taken by the arm and we listen to same story, but with pleasant variations. === Ce film de Woody ALLEN est comme une promenade avec un ami. On se laisse prendre par le bras et on l'écoute raconter toujours la même histoire, mais avec des variantes agréables. 3,6666666
Really mediocre. Lauzy interpretations, old jokes, old plot, New York without a glow, no rhythm and pour camera work. Timothée was a good actor, not anymore and this two girls could comeback to their pink soap opera world where they come from, both unbearable. Woody makes films already like a machine, some formula and no heart.
I really really liked Elle Fannig - i think when she got the right script and the right director she is simply one of the best american actresses as of now (her ark is the strongest). I also liked the dynamics of boy/girl relationship. But Chalamet and Gomez were so weak.. It's incredible who out of plays they were, simply drowning in the nice script by Woody. Chalamet was trying to channel his inner WA, yikes
A luxury cast with trendy actors, Woody Allen repeats the formula that - while bringing nothing of transcendence to cinema and his particular cinematography -, made him popular a few decades ago. As cliché and derogatory as it may sound, it is a fall/winter film that fits perfectly right next to a blanket, on the couch. It may not have enough that sparkling thing or big quality to see in the movie theater, imo.
Here we go again. A feel good movie that feels out of touch with our reality - which is not a bad thing, just a means of escapism. Woody Allen captures a NYC that does not really exist, while using the city’s very real way of surprising you.
6.3/10, "It is a beautiful, soothing film to look at and listen to, but again, all that glitters is not gold, and A RAINY DAY IN NEW YORK is unequivocally too antiquated for its own good."
