Everyone is gathering at Lane's place for the weekend, and everyone's in love. Unfortunately, each beloved loves somebody else, and no one seems to realize it. Written by
It's hell gettin' older. Especially when you feel 21 inside. All the strengths that sustain you all through your life just vanish one by one. And you study your face in the mirror, and you... you notice something's missing. And then you realize it's your future.

One of Woody Allen's most maligned films, this is nevertheless not as poor as what one might expect, and there are a number of good things about the production. Aside from the interesting philosophies that one expects from a serious Allen film, the film is also quite well shot, coupled with an interesting yellow art direction scheme. The weather sound effects work quite well, but the best aspect is however the performances by Mia Farrow and Dianne Wiest. It is not the best work in the career of either actress, but they both flesh out their characters quite well. It is a pretty mournful film in Ingmar Bergman style, lacking in any wit from Allen, and it is a talkative and abrupt watch at times. It is not one of Woody Allen's best films, but it has too many good things about it to be regarded as his worst.
