Makes Us Reflect On The Choices We Make In Life
20 November 2001 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

This is not like any other Woody Allen movie I've seen before. He writes and directs this film which hits many levels of the human heart. The acting is well performed and the subject matter makes you reflect upon your own life and the choices you've made along the way. This one is to be added to your collection.
