I meant to review this shortly after I watched it, which was over a week ago. Whoops.
Anyway, it’s a nice film. It has one of the best endings out of all of the Woody Allen movies I’ve watched so far. It is arguably his take on Alice in Wonderland, and while there are some similarities, this is definitely its own separate story. It starts off seeming like a story that takes place in the normal, real world – then Woody decides that Chines herbs can make you (and your clothes) invisible. Just go with it.
That is actually my best advice for watching this film – just got with it. If you go in with the mindset that whatever fantasy elements are thrown at you are fair game, you’ll have a good time. The story is good and strong, it makes a great point, and the ending seemed inevitable in the best way. It actually takes a lot for a film to make me okay with an ending in which (spoiler alert) the main characters don’t fall in love, but this film made it work.
