Isn't up to Allen's old school or new school standards. But it's pretty. And it shows, again, if you let Penelope Cruz speak Spanish instead of forcing her through English, her presence will darn near suck the film right out of the camera.
There was hope in 2005 that Woody Allen had re-discovered his groove with the release of Match Point. Since then, however, he has slipped back into the sinkhole of mediocrity that kept him from greatness throughout most of the '90s and '00s.
Long ago, Allen became interested in "the artist" only as a theme and rhetorical figure. The actual making of art, whether as his subject or as embodied by his own films, no longer grips him. It may actually bore him.
