About the Film
Woody Allen, one of the most respected filmmakers on the international film landscape for over three decades, explores some of his most beloved terrain in Melinda and Melinda. The twist is introduced in the film's opening scene, in which four sophisticated New Yorkers enjoy a dinner out on a rainy night. An anecdote provokes a discussion between writers Max (Larry Pine) and Sy (Wallace Shawn) about the dual nature of human drama, symbolized by the comedy, tragedy mask of theater. Ultimately a comic tale unfolds, pitted against a more dramatic version of itself-both centered around a somewhat enigmatic woman named Melinda (Radha Mitchell).
Melinda and melinda
Smashing film,loved it,well worth a look.
I cannot quite express how awful this film is - there are good bit, but not enough to make it worth investing the time it takes to watch. First - the iTunes synopsis isn't accurate. Second - the actors apparently intentionally (because it's so obvious) take turns doing their interpretations of the Woody Allen characters from his earlier films from Annie Hall to Crimes and Misdemeanours. Third - I rented the film because Wallace Shaun was 'in it' sadly he wasn't 'really' and his scenes could easily be cut from the film without changing it much.
Not his best!
The movie has some moments and all performances are good.
There is nothing new here to any Woody Allen fan. The split storyline is a nice framework, though neither was very strong. One funny and one tragic.......unfortunately both were neither.
