Manolo P (mx) wrote: The egocentric and reprehensible proposal of Woody Allen uses the very debatable positions between destiny, luck and effort, creating a tense and often repetitive drama whose central axis is the capacity of the human being to decide between our passions or the reason, where anxiety and obsession desperately cloud thought. The narrative is fluid, but predictable, and Allen's mental games are not fully consolidated to make this a sufficiently provocative and acceptably graceful story. Filled with devoid acts, the cast is rather irritating and uncool, only Johansson has a job that is more than fantastic, and although the screenplay and photography are worthy of admiration, this attempt to unite opera and drama, as well as the comments that are usually cited to produce a poetic effect and sustain the work, point to a rather artificial and discursively unfinished result. 62/100
