With your ears, right?
an overlooked masterpiece
I am amazed at how neglected this film is. It is a real gem. I'm a big
Allen film and I consider it one of his best. The story is intelligent,
well-written, funny, and charming. The themes of love, fate, and
are explored in a thoroughly entertaining way. A great performance by all
the actors, but special mention should be made of Jose Ferrer and Julie
Haggerty. See this movie. You will not be disappointed.
