The Purple Rose of Cairo, Woody Allen's latest, is the slight but charming story of what happens when Cinderella's Prince steps out of the fairy tale and comes to New Jersey for a taste of Reality.

Delightful from beginning to end, not only because of the clarity and charm with which Daniels and Farrow explore the problems of their characters, but also because the movie is so intelligent.

It is one of Allen's deepest reflections on the seventh art and its function as an escape from our harsh reality. [Full review in Spanish]

When discussing Woody Allen masterpieces, titles like Annie Hall and Hannah and Her Sisters are frequently cited (and rightly so), but where's the love for The Purple Rose of Cairo, a movie that even Woody himself considers among his top two or three?

Whimsical Woody Allen love note to '30s films.

Woody Allen's bittersweet comedy about the magical allure of movies in the Depression era was nominated for Original Screenplay Oscar, but it's premise is smiliar to that of Buster Keaton's 1924 silent.
