Storyline

Marion is a woman who has learned to shield herself from her emotions. She rents an apartment to work undisturbed on her new book, but by some acoustic anomaly she can hear all that is said in the next apartment in which a psychiatrist holds his office. When she hears a young woman tell that she finds it harder and harder to bear her life, Marion starts to reflect on her own life. After a series of events she comes to understand how her unemotional attitude towards the people around her affected them and herself. Written by Leon Wolters <wolters@strw.LeidenUniv.nl>

Marion: [voiceover] If someone had asked me when I reached my fifties to assess my life, I would have said that I had achieved a decent measure of fulfillment, both personally and professionally. Beyond that, I would say I don't choose to delve.

excellent performances and script.
30 December 2003 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

This is a character study film. There are many "layers" to the story. Allen comments via the character in a subtle way. The film uses surreal and the subconscious to lead the characters to their destination. I like the fact that the ending left the viewer with his or her own ideas about the outcome of the characters. Nothing in this film is "forced on the viewer." Gena Rowlands narrates and is very easy to listen to. This is definitly not a film for the person who would rather watch than think. Rowlands puts in a very fine performance, in my opinion, she is one of the under-rated actress' of her time. The film runs less than 90 minutes. I didn't know what to expect when the film started but was surprised and pleased with this film!
