2010 Guide Analysis: "If there's one thing you can give Woody Allen credit for, it's his consistency. Since 1988's "Another Woman", the man has directed a feature film each and every year even as the quality has varied considerably. Still riding high on his biggest successes of the past decade, "Match Point" in 2005 and "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" in 2008, he returns with his fourth London-set project following on from 'Match' and disappointments "Scoop" and "Cassandra's Dream".

The first of a three-picture deal he signed with Mediapro in the wake of the success of 'Vicky', what's exciting here is that he's assembled a hell of a cast, even by Allen's standards. Watts, Hopkins, Brolin, Banderas amongst others should ensure a healthy interest amongst casual cinemagoers who rarely turn out for one of his films. There was a brief ruckus when Nicole Kidman was cast in the lead role and dropped out, she was eventually replaced by rising British actress Lucy Punch.

The storyline details are being kept under wraps as per usual, so the tone here (comedy/drama/thriller) is hard to say even though it apparently deals with an affair. Allen's last film, "Whatever Works", scored mixed reviews and a mere $21 million in box-office - it'll be a shock if this doesn't improve on that."
