Another film that is, to me, underrated. I was ugly crying so much. Maybe I'm just an emotional flower who wants to fall in love on a rainy night in a cozy Vermont cabin. Or maybe this film, with its perfect location and wonderful cast and great music and heart wrenching lines, is damn good.
One of Allen's very very worst films, and that's really saying something. Painful. The cast does its very best, but they can't escape the banality of the dialogue and the essenital whiniess of the characters.
While I can see why this film bombed in the box office, it's for reasons that really should not be the case. It very much is a piece of art if looked at from the right perspective; that is, Allen intended this to be like a stage play on film. Therefore, I can see why many could take it as boring, when it is in fact just subtle. Some of the best monologues I've heard in his work thus far. A glorious picture for sure.
