Felt like I had gotten my money's worth when it was over. Ending was a little weak, but most of it
was compelling. Russell Crowe's performance was terrific. The plot moved along snappily. The movie managed to be a thriller without too much noise, shooting, etc. There was some, but it didn't dominate. I especially liked the inside view of how news makes it into the paper. Hope it was somewhat realistic -- it seemed so. Ben Affleck was very good playing the dashing, but underneath weak, Congresssman. But Russell Crowe was clearly the star -- a very fine actor in a nuanced performance.
Very easy to look at! Acting was excellent, and ambiance was gorgeous. The warm golden sun of
Barcelona and Spain really came through. As usual with Woody Allen, looking for permanence iin love and inevitable dissatisfactions in relationships are themes that occupy the characters, with fun and games along the way. I thoroughly enjoyed this film.
