I’ve often disparaged films for denying us a character we can root for, but every rule has its exceptions, and if there’s anyone who can break the rules and get away with it, it’s Woody Allen.

I had a smile on my face from the moment Woody Allen’s latest film began, with an idyllic series of Parisian street scenes set to the music of jazz great Sidney Bechet…and the film maintained that lovely quality all the way to the finale. Allen may be a fatalist, as he often claims, but this film is whimsical and romantic—a divertissement that recalls one of his most endearing and original comedies, The Purple Rose of Cairo.
