An interesting film! Comedy in its original definition.

any literary composition dealing with a theme suitable for comedy, or employing the methods of comedy.

An interesting series of dilemmas permeate this morality tale.

This movie is one of the pinnacles in Woody Allen's career. It deals with several troubling subjects. However, the classy re-working of it, Match Point, has less filler, is infinitely superior, less philosophical, and far more refined and subtle - in fact it is the best movie I've seen in my life.

Decent drama, definitely not as light-hearted as other Allen movies.

The Landau-Huston half of the film works very well; comic relief half with Woody, Alda, and Mia is a disaster. Sharp cameo by Claire Bloom as The Super-Rich Wife.

This is my favorite Allen film. It has plenty of comedic and ironical dialog, an Allen trademark, however it is a very serious film. Acting powerhouse Martin Landau gives what became an Oscar winning performance for this role. My favorite part of the story, and I think the pivotal part of the story, was when he goes back and sees her dead body. All of a sudden this is real to him. Not some academic theoretical game, but real flesh and blood and HE'S responsible. The thing that sticks out to me is, what I would say is "What did you think it was going to look like"? This is 'A' quality work to be sure.
