Enjoyable

Probably not Woody Allen at his best, but still very good fun - I loved the sequences with the Greek chorus; and also the film was very thought provoking. I thought the basic premise of a man wishing to find out more about the parental background of the baby boy he has adopted with his wife, is an excellent premise for a film. But as the Greek chorus comment - is this really a good idea ? The ideas are explored in an entertaining fashion - maybe it is a five star film, I don't know, ... but then I found the story line of the wife-character trying to start up an art gallery a bit less than interesting.

This is one Woody Allen film that I would put well behind the main batch. The storyline is rushed and the finale is wrapped up quicker than a late birthday present.
The redeeming feature is undeniably the performance of Miva Sarvino as Linda. She won both an Oscar & Golden Globe for her portrayal of the dizzy call girl. Helena Bonham Carter was also very attractive on the eye but had a much lesser role. Woody's a very lucky man!
The film is narrated by a group of Greek actors & choristers, which frankly I found unamusing and slightly irritating, for me it added absolutely nothing to the pic’! Woody is his usual self of course and always worth a watch, but the film is quite lightweight, unremarkable and easily forgettable. Had it not been for Miva’s performance; this would have been rated a 2 star film from me!

Typical Woody Allen film. It's New York, Allen is kooky and a sports writer, the leading lady (Mira Sorvino, looking magnificent as a tart with a heart) is kooky. Not a lot happens but the human heart is revealed. Helena Bonham Carter is there as the somewhat underwitten stressed wife. A Greek Chorus is sometimes amusing, sometimes not. It only last 1.5 hours so why not watch it?

Why the Greeks??
Verified purchase
Love the plot of this film but I found Mira Sorvino's character annoying (although she did get an Oscar for it). She seems to be doing an impersonation of Miss Piggy. Woody Allen plays the character he always plays and there are slightly pretentious and weird interludes involving a group of weirdly masked stage actors dispensing advice to the protagonist from the ruins of a Greek-style amphitheatre. The film, quite frankly, could have done without it. That said, it would probably sneak into my top ten Woody Allen films of all time.

Typical Woody Allen, of course with the nerdy little man being loved by gorgeous younger women. Typical script too, with characters talking over each other. But loved the Oscar-winning performance of Mira Sorvino and the kooky 'interventions' of the Greek chorus set in the Graeco-Roman theatre at Taormina, Sicily which I recently visited and which was why I bought the DVD ! Can't wait to send it to the friends I made on that trip. I hope they can make head or tail of it!
