 Match point, well executed though lacking originality

🙂 🙂

ratings explained

Recommended for people who fit in at least one of the following categories:

  • are fascinated by watching talented actors with unusually large top lips (Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Scarlett Johansson) deliver weak dialogue  with buckets of sultryness.
  • adore listening to plummy English accents.
  • thrive on wathcing classy delivery of bit part’s by outstanding actors like Brian Cox and Penelope Wilton
  • are committed Woody Allen fans, enjoying his style and pet obsessions irrespective of how familiar they are from his previous films.
  • have not seen Crimes and Misdemeanors. Angelica Huston and Martin Landau did a good job originally. Is this a remake? l don’t think so. It’s difficult to tell.
  • can’t help enjoying themselves when they see the gherkin or any part of it.

Excellent acting and camera work but way too familiar plot with some rather weak dialogue.   l wouldn’t watch it again.
