Cassandra's Dream

Critics Consensus

Colin Farrell and Tom Wilkinson act up a storm in Cassandra's Dream, but Woody Allen's heavy-handed symbolism and foreshadowing drains the plot of all tension.

Movie Info

Life is good for the Blaine brothers, at least for the moment. Ian (Ewan McGregor), a restaurateur, is in love with a gorgeous actress (Hayley Atwell) ; and Terry (Colin Farrell) wins big at the dog track and buys a yacht. Their luck soon changes when Terry's loan sharks come calling. The brothers ask their wealthy Uncle Howard (Tom Wilkinson) for a loan, which he is happy to provide in exchange for one little favor: Kill a whistle-blowing colleague.

    I have never been a fan of Woody Allen films, but the last couple that I have seen have surprised me...I can actually say that I have liked them. Hmmmm. Go figure. I have noticed, however, that fans of Woody Allen films have not. Maybe this is a new era for him. Hope so...This movie has some great acting, especially from Colin Farrell, and a decent storyline. Reminds me of a Hitchcock type of film.

    It's nice to see Woody Allen going outside the box a little by not making just another romantic comedy, but the suspense is just dull, and the script is uneven. Bad ending too.

    It doesn't have the same level of tension, mood, or sense of realism that Allen's best works (ie Match Point) have, but it's still an effective morality tale, and yet another exploration of human nature by Woody Allen. The story itself isn't entirely unfamiliar, but is executed well and manages to stay absorbing throughout.

    I don't remember anything about this movie and I watched it about a month ago so I guess that's all that needs saying about it.
