You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger (2010)

You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger” is a bitter, ironic, realistic, not so funny, but with a profound understanding of the human soul and human relationships as ever, Woody Allen film. One might fall into the trap and say that everything has been said before in many and different ways. Yes, the style is the same but … there is something more.

“if you wish upon a star, doesn’t matter who you are…your dream will come through”, says the little song from the old days, when the film begins, but this is just an irony about the things that the people wish for. Because, let us face it: most of the times, we humans do not know what our wishes really mean, not even for ourselves. And when we do realize that, it is too late.

The movie is also a comment on the things that Woody Allen deals with, in almost all his movies, in one or another way, i.e. death and the way people react when they face the reality. Sometimes, illusions work better than drugs as he says 🙂

Excellent cast and performances, not one of his best movies, but a worth seeing one.

My rating: 06/10
