Woody Allen breathes life into Penélope Cruz, she had only achieved under Pedro Almodóvar's direction. A surefire Academy Award nominee, and hopefully a winner, for her role in this film, her key moment might be during her last scene where Allen brings her back in one of his insane twists and she still comes out a winner, giving a master class in subtlety, inner pain and sensuality. What's curious is that she isn't even the best thing about the movie! Click on the picture to read my review. Come back and comment.
