    A rare misfire from Woody Allen, October 24, 2016

    This review is from: Midsummer Night’s Sex Comedy, A (Amazon Video)
    A rare misfire from the gifted (albeit controversial) writer-director, who has given us several masterpieces — not this time. The film has few characters that we can care about. Although it bears a faint resemblance to Chekov’s “The Segull,” in that many major characters lust after other major characters, who lust after their alternating spouses or girlfriends, there is not much original or interesting material — so, it drags to its whimsical conclusion.

    Great casting and a low-key, but funny script. This film definitely doesn’t hit you over the head with the jokes (such as in “Take the Money and Run.”) Instead Allen lays out his characters’ chicanery slow and easy, which is fitting since the story takes place in the early 20th century and is set in a countryside estate. Mary Steenburgen is amusing and pitied as a woman no longer sexually attracted to her inventor husband (Allen); but it is Jose Ferrer (Dr. Leopold) who plays the pompous, but lecherous Lothario who just a day before his wedding, seeks out the physical companionship of Adrian (Steenburgen.)

    Meanwhile, a flustered Andrew (Allen) tries to rekindled a botched relationship with Ariel (Farrow), who is Leopold’s bride-to-be. However, literally standing in his way is Andrew’s friend, Maxwell (Tony Roberts.)

    Of all Allen’s films, I rank this at the top of the heap, even above (gulp!)…”Annie Hall.”

    One of Woody’s best!, September 13, 2007

    Woody Allen is at his best in the charming comedy about a neurotic (of course)Victorian era New York (of course)stock broker/crackpot inventor, who owns a summer farm house in a magical and mystical area of upstate New York. He invites several friends to join him and his sexually cold wife for one of the final weekends of the summer. Invited are a philandering doctor, a sexually knowledgable nurse, as well as an insufferably aloof academic with his fiance on the day before their marriage. The situation builds as Woody, who is having intimacy issues with his wife, realizes that the academic’s fiance is a former love interest of Woody’s. Liaisons abound and trists are everywhere. Woody Allen uses his “off screen” dialogue techniques better in this film than in any of his others and his sense of whimsey makes this movie a sheer delight.
