It has been a long time since I have seen a Woody Allen movie with the power of this one. It is not a comedy, but rather a tragic drama of a rich woman (Cate Blanchett)reduced to poverty. Cate Blanchet does a superb job of portraying the mentally ill woman sympathetically.

This is truly a great movie well worth seeing but a warning that it is not uplifting and upbeat comedy many of us associate with Woody Allen.
