You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger – review | Film | The Guardian
You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger () Watch it now . I'm not sure why this film doesn't get better ratings, but my hunch is that it's because, compared to.

For years and years now, reviewers myself included, in the past have ruefully, sorrowfully, insistently told Allen that his latest work is no good, and Allen has declined to oblige them by quitting.
Like a spry veteran jockey, he goes on galloping round the course, not riding winners, but not falling off either, despite thousands of pundits out in the grandstand who have staked their reputation on the inevitability of his doing so. His latest picture is a case in point. A low-key ensemble dramedy set in London, it has familiar late Allen flaws: Yet it is also inventive, persistently diverting, speckled with ideas.
Line by line, scene by scene, I always found something there to hold the attention. It is never boring. Anthony Hopkins and Gemma Jones play Alfie and Helena, an ageing couple who separate when Alfie has a late menopausal need to date younger women.
Lonely, credulous Helena starts listening to an absurd fortune teller, played by Pauline Collins. Their art-dealer daughter Sally Naomi Watts becomes infatuated with her boss Antonio Banderaswhile her failed novelist husband Josh Brolin also begins to stray.
