The trick is to enjoy life, accepting it has no meaning whatsoever
I recall seeing a Woody Allen film before. I believe it was Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex * But Were Afraid to Ask. I don't really recall it, and it was so long ago. If this film is a typical Woody Allen film, then I have been cheating myself out of great pleasure for a long time.
Rebecca Hall, Scarlett Johansson, Javier Bardem, Patricia Clarkson, and Penélope Cruz were all fascinating, especially Cruz, not to diminish the fine performances from all of them.
The story was amazing. I was mesmerized for the entire 96 minutes. I could not miss one word of the dialog. The direction was perfect and it is definitely one of the mine best films.
And, not to mention that Penélope Cruz deserved her Oscar and every other award for her this role. She is a sweet-heart!
