"I can live with the fact that I live with the fact that I spent some money to watch this film, but it is more painful to realize that I will never get the 90 minutes or so back I spent watching it. More fool me for not just abandoning it earlier on. Any film that needs a voice-over to convey what a film itself should communicate is doomed. (Was the voice over an afterthought as in Bladerunner?) One or two well scripted scenes at the beginning should have been able to convey what we are told by the disembodied voice about the motivations of the characters involved. Granted, it is beautifully shot, making the only real star of the film the locations themselves. The rest was so slight as not to leave any lasting impression other than to remind us that Woody Allen is still alive-but as a film director, only just."
