Directed by: Woody Allen
Written by: Woody Allen
Produced by: Letty Aronson
Distributor: Fox Searchlight

US: 18 MARCH 2005
UK: 25 MARCH 2005

Combines romantic comedy and drama in a way that Woody Allen, unique among filmmakers, likes to contrast. It takes place in Manhattan and chronicles a pair of crises that give reign to the talents of Chiwetel Ejiofor, Will Ferrell, Jonny Lee Miller, Radha Mitchell, Amanda Peet, Chloë Sevigny and Wallace Shawn. All the usual Allen areas are explained - the fragility of love, marital infidelity, sophisticated romance, the inability to communicate. As a character in the movie puts it, "He's despondent, he's desperate, he's suicidal. All the comic elements are in place.".
Even in his slow decline, the Woodsman knows funny. He also invented the modern romantic comedy with Manhattan and Annie Hall. For that fact alone, I will always pay to see a Woody Allen flick. Whether you agree is another matter. Amazingly for the UK we're getting an Allen flick one week after the US as opposed to the customary one year, at least.
