  • Cert: 15<BR /> Woody Allen / USA 1989 / 1h44m / 35mm<BR /> Cast: Martin Landau, Woody Allen, Alan Alda, Anjelica Huston, Sam Waterston. In the first of two loosely interwoven stories, rich, philanthropic ophthalmologist Judah Rosenthal (Martin Landau), afraid his lover will reveal all to his wife, decides to dispose of the former with the help of a hit-man. In the second, more comic story, earnest, impoverished documentarist Clifford Stern (Woody Allen) falls for the producer of a TV tribute he has reluctantly agreed to make about the brother-in-law he hates, a conceited, successful maker of sitcoms. Judah and Clifford meet only in the final scene: what links them throughout is guilt, stemming from an obsessive interest in matters of faith and ethics.

    Judah (Martin Landau) is a respected ophthalmologist and family man, who fears that the revelation of his affair with flight attendant Dolores (Anjelica Huston) may threaten his comfortable life. Featuring an all-star cast (including Allen himself ), Woody Allen’s existential comedy forces us to consider how far we would go to protect what is ours, and whether our moral choices reflect anything more than our fear of being punished.
