A good summary of this film seems to me 'Woody Allen on drugs': characters that won't shut up in unstable relationships accompanied by jazz music topped with a sauce of surreal absurdity. The playfulness, joy and originality the film breathes throughout make it very fun and unique although these amaible qualities sometimes seemed to be at the expense of depth and content. It never really succeeds in transcending itself or reaching further than it's playful dialogues.
