Early on, it feels like it might become one of Allen’s best. Then the narrative direction becomes clear, the possibilities narrow, and the film shuts down along with them.

Like eating an icecream, you can't expect the taste to linger, but it's at least tasty.

This film is about a magician played Colin Firth. He meets a young woman played by Emma Stone that claims she is a medium. He tries to expose her as a fraud. This is set in the south of France in the 1920's. The cinematography is great. There is the typically great Allen dialogue. But there is a lack spark betweeen the two leads. Woody has always been a bit...
