"Even worse than the execrable Match Point - Woody Allen has used up his nine lives. The voice-over was so irritating and inane. None of the characters were particularly interesting, bar Penelpe Cruz's Maria. It was smug and condescending towards Americans for their supposed materialism - the contrast with the caricature of cultured, sophisticated artistic Europeans was very subtle. Woody still wanting to be Bergman, I guess. And the menage a trois? More late middle-aged fantasies. Vicky is doing a Master's in Catalan identity but can't speak a word of the language. Well, of course."
