IFC Review: "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger"

Reviewed at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival by Anthony Kaufman of IFC.

Woody Allen has preempted criticism of his latest breezy exercise in romantic neurosis by opening and closing his film by evoking Shakespeare's famous line: "It is a tale full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." While that claim may be facetious - Allen returns here to familiar territory that is potentially meaty, concerning fate, sex, love, death and consequences - "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger" is a light, forgettable entertainment, signifying more of the same old stuff from the 74-year-old auteur.

The story is too old to be commented.
