Gloriously Impossible

As a Woody Allen fan, I'm naturally glad that he manages to pump out a movie a year. On the other hand, though, it's a shame that that constant, clockwork production keeps knocking minor little gems like this one off the map.

Not only would no one ever say, "Everybody Says I Love Youis my favorite Woody Allen movie," but a lot of people, fans included, might forget he ever made it. If I had to recite the man's filmography, I'd be a dozen or so titles into the list before I even remembered this one.

But, as Andrew Sarris once wrote of Manhattan, the movie that finally changed his verdict on Woody Allen, "'Swonderful." What a lovely, absurd juxtaposition: Allen's nervous realism of surfaces and minor neuroses slapped up against the raw emotional exposure of a good old-fashioned musical number. It's no coincidence that when these non-singers (Allen included!) break out into song, they're almost always alone.

Oh, and then there's Venice, probably Allen's second-favorite city in the world. The perfect setting for him to take Goldie Hawn's hand and do something utterly yet gloriously impossible with her.
