Storyline

Plot Summary

In the funeral of the famous British journalist Joe Strombel (Ian McShane), his colleagues and friends recall how obstinate he was while seeking a scoop. Meanwhile, the deceased Joe discloses the identity of the tarot card serial killer of London. He cheats Death (Pete Mastin) and appears to the American student of journalism Sondra Pransky (Scarlett Johansson), who is on the stage in the middle of a magic show of the magician Sidney Waterman (Woody Allen) in London, and tells her that the murderer is the aristocrat Peter Lyman (Hugh Jackman). Sondra drags Sid in her investigation, seeking for evidence that Peter is the killer. However, she falls in love with him and questions if Joe Strombel is right in his scoop. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia The lead character (originally an adult journalist) was tailored specifically to Scarlett Johansson, whom Woody Allen observed as having an unused "funny" quality about her while working on Match Point (2005). See more »
Goofs Peter never asks Sondra how she got into his secure room to find the Tarot cards under the French Horn. (However it's conceivable he believed she saw him enter it when they entered the room earlier.) See more »
