The basic story line/plot was the solid foundation for a very entertaining combination of very well-written dialog, a well-defined believable group of characters, fabulous interior and exterior period (1928) scenery, exquisite period costuming and music, and a terrific cast that brought it all to life.
Of particular note was the role of the aunt, so charmingly underplayed by a truly delightful veteran English actress. Her affected portrayal left me wanting more of her character (she’d be a welcome as-is walk-on for Downton Abbey).
The philosophic question regarding happiness that the story line raises had just the right subtle amplitude to leave one pondering, the humor fit the time period and the characters, and the whole tone and content of the movie had a lightness that elevated it’s entertainment value.
A terrific and not often seen example of well-paced and entertaining story telling.
Pretty mediocre Allen work
I am a Woody Allen fan. Not a die hard fan, but he has made some damn good movies over the past decade or so, and that is after I thought he had become irrelevant. This is certainly not one of them. It is a plodding sort of affair, with few bright moments. And it lacked much humor or much pathos. Not really a worthwhile affair, in my book. I feel now, like I would have rather spent two hours reading a book, or getting a massage. I realize you can’t win them all, and I realize he cannot always make a good film. The characters were fine, the acting was good, and the sets and production were gorgeous. Just not much of a story to tell.
