Storyline

Follows a pair of married couples, Alfie (Hopkins) and Helena (Jones), and their daughter Sally (Watts) and husband Roy (Brolin), as their passions, ambitions, and anxieties lead them into trouble and out of their minds. After Alfie leaves Helena to pursue his lost youth and a free-spirited call girl named Charmaine (Punch), Helena abandons rationality and surrenders her life to the loopy advice of a charlatan fortune teller. Unhappy in her marriage, Sally develops a crush on her handsome art gallery owner boss, Greg (Banderas), while Roy, a novelist nervously awaiting the response to his latest manuscript, becomes moonstruck over Dia (Pinto), a mystery woman who catches his gaze through a nearby window. Written by Sony Pictures Classics

Woody Allen still remarkable!!
18 January 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This films makes me wonder about Woody Allen's perceptive views on a quick visit to London and all what is really happening at the moment in this society of glorious diversity in all aspects of life. The inability of reaching out to the nearest and dearest. The daughter tantrums and nastiness when finances are concerned were nothing out of the norm nowadays. There is a portrait of how insular people are whenever there is someone close in need of emotional support. Money is destroying all possibilities for people to mature emotionally. The mother was very entertaining. Dia was an eternal over protected daughter who may not experience adulthood fully as her family will be sucking her energy whenever they get a chance. The midlife crises of both husbands, with money or not, were very much a cry from Woody Allen's brotherly love to manhood. Who needs a happy ending for all characters when there is so much to be confronted and understood?
