The film tells the story of an American couple attending the San Sebastian International Film Festival. The charm of that small city in the North of Spain and the charm of the world of cinema soon seduce the couple. She has a slip with a brilliant French film director, while he falls in love with a young Spanish resident in the city.
In "Rifkin's Festival" actor Sergi Lopez plays a painter. More than 130 canvases, materials, utensils and part of the library of local expressionist painter Juan Luis Goenaga (father of actress Bárbara Goenaga) were used to set the character's study. See more »
During the game of chess played against Death, the table appears incorrectly rotated. According to the rules of chess, the right square on the bottom row of each player should be white. Both players should know better than to make this mistake. Interestingly, the same mistake appears in the original movie "Det sjunde inseglet" by Ingmar Bergman. See more »

Better ending than beginning
Even if it's the same Woody Allen's topics of all these years, It's better than I thought. Has some dull parts in the middle, but its pace improves towards the end, specially with the acting of the lady playing doctor Jo Rojas and the crazy Sergi Lopez cameo. Rifkin's character gains some depth, too, as the movie approaches to the end. And the scene with Waltz is absolutely hilarious, maybe the only good jokes of all the movie.
Loved the black & white, as well, but I keep wondering if Allen will surprise his public again with a final masterpiece. We can always hope.
