Storyline

Jake is a writer. He is married to Maggie, but his marriage is in trouble. He cannot stop thinking about other women in his life, characters he invents conversations with. He is constantly talking to: his deceased wife Julie, his daughter Molly, his sister Karen, and his psychiatrist Edith. All he does is have imaginary conversations with real people that are at the moment out of his life. Maggie cannot stand his mind wandering off all the time and decides to separate for six months and at the end of six months they will decide whether or not to remain together. Jake has a few girl friends, but spends the six months, while waiting for Maggie, only talking to these imaginary people, and a few times to real people. Written by Rosemea D.S. MacPherson

Intriguing But Too Long
21 February 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Jake (Alan Alda) is a delirious and delusional writer: in his mind, he lives surrounded and talks with his dead wife Julie (Mira Sorvino), his sister, his psychiatrist, his daughter, his present wife Maggie (Anne Archer) and other women, mixing reality and delirious. He has many unresolved problems and they affect his relationship with Maggie and their marriage ends. Through his visions and conversation with these women, the viewer becomes aware of his traumas and ghosts from the past. The beginning of this movie is very intriguing. Alan Alda has a great performance, but the story, although having no clichés and some funny and dramatic situations, is too long. In the end, I was bored and waiting anxiously for the end of the film. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): `As Mulheres de Jake' (`The Women of Jake')
