Plot Summary

Academy Award-winner and Emmy Award-nominee Barbara Kopple ("American Dream," "Harlan County, USA") directs this documentary portrait of Academy Award and Golden Globe-winner Woody Allen ("Annie Hall," "Hannah and Her Sisters"), seen traveling with friends and fellow musicians during their New Orleans jazz band's 1996 European tour. Allen's relationship with Soon Yi Previn is captured on film here, and others on the European jaunt include bandleader as well as Allen's sister Letty Aronson. Followed by press, paparazzi, and gushing admirers, Allen returns home to face a more realistic critical assessment during "the lunch from hell" with his aged parents.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: In her unexpectedly delightful documentary about Woody Allen as jazz musician, Barbara Kopple demonstrates cinema verite at its most seductive. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Kopple's discreet, quietly revelatory style creates a fine balance between public and private personae that veers more pointedly toward the personal in an incongruous but fascinating coda. – David Rooney, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: [Kopple's] made a greatly enjoyable film, but you can't help wondering if she's fallen under her subject's spell. – Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 16, 2007

Fresh: [Kopple] might seem an unlikely choice for this material, but no doubt her track record gained Allen's trust. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010
