A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy



The hosts are Leopold’s cousin Andrew (Allen himself), a Wall Street broker and part-time inventor of flying machines and magic lanterns, and his wife Adrian (Mary Steenburgen), while their other guests are rakish Dr Maxwell Jordan (Tony Roberts) and his nurse girlfriend Dulcy (Julie Hagerty).  And with love so abundantly in the air, none of them can resist indulging in a little partner-swapping.  After all, none of the other couples will ever find out – will they?

English A very nice, almost cute film. It’s just ticklish and funny enough, sensationally acted (Julie Hagerty is an absolutely charming creature). And I didn't even mind the lack of jazz, as Woody Allen sucked all the music out of Mendelssohn Bartholdy this time. What amused me as much as a lot of the jokes and pranks were the constant playing with the camera and its long shots. ()

English "Sex alleviates tension and love causes it." This is how it can turn out when a master directs a relaxing film. I thought it would just be a little toy for Woody Allen's pleasure, but amidst a flood of gags and occasional pessimistic thoughts, everything converges into a captivating parody of dramas about fateful decisions and bundles of thoughts on the same subject. The only director from whom I can list ten more significant films on the spot, and yet I know that he deserves a fifth star for this one as well. ()
