Storyline

A Russian is caught up in the Napoleonic invasion of his country. Much of the humor comes from the philosophic conversations that people break into in the midst of crisis situations. Written by John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

Trivia

After filming Love and Death (1975), the shoot was so difficult filming in Paris and Hungary, Woody Allen vowed never to shoot there again. Interestingly, considering this, Shadows and Fog (1991) is set in Eastern / Central Europe and was not shot there, but on huge sound stages at New York's Astoria Studios. However, Allen in later years has shot in Europe and England. Everyone Says I Love You (1996) was the first Woody Allen directed film since Love and Death (1975) to be shot outside of New York.

Goofs

Early in the movie, Boris notes that Old Gregor is younger than Young Gregor. In Boris' reflection near the end of the movie, he refers to them as Old Nehamkin and Young Nehamkin. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Boris: How I got into this predicament I'll never know. Absolutely incredible. To be executed for a crime I never committed. Of course, isn't all mankind in the same boat? Isn't all mankind ultimately executed for a crime it never committed? The difference is that all men go eventually, but I go six o'clock tomorrow morning. I was supposed to go at five o'clock but I have a smart lawyer. Got leniency.

Possibly Allen's comic masterpiece
14 February 2004 | by (Northern California) – See all my reviews

Although the critics loved Annie Hall and some of Allen's other films more than this one, I think this is his best combination of comedy and philosophy. I would strongly recommend this to any fan of Russian history, comedy, philosophy, or Woody Allen.
