| Suspense and comedy filmed in London by the great Woody Allen
An young American journalist student named Sandra (Scarlett Johansson: Black Dahlia,Island)residing in UK goes to interview a known actor(Kevin McNally). Later she and her friend(Romola Garay) go to a magic-show. She's is selected in one of the acts by magician named Sidney(Woody Allen).But she's spontaneously contacted by the ghost of a deceased reporter(Ian McShane: Nine lives,Sexy beast). He explains hers which the son of Lord Lyman(Julian Glover), a cocky young man named Peter(Hugh Jackman: Xmen,Van Helsing,Sworthfish)is the tarot card serial killer. She along with Sidney try to investigate if Peter Lyman is really a murderer and get a great scoop for chief-reporter(Charles Dance). Sandra goes to an elitist swimming pool where simulates drowning and she knows Peter Lyman, starting an affair with the aristocrat and falls in love with him.

This enjoyable comedy-mystery is well realized by Woody Allen.The film displays murder, suspense, humor, love and is pretty entertaining. Casting is frankly extraordinary: A gorgeous Scarlett Johansson as lovely, intrepid journalism student, Hugh Jackman as elegant, polish noble young and Woody Allen as sympathetic but staggering magician. The picture is the second of the trio filmed in London, along with ¨Match Point and Cassandra's dream¨ and also the second shooting with his last muse, Scarlett Johansson, along with ¨Match Point and Vicky Cristina Barcelona¨ ,in production and recently filmed in Spain when filming by Allen always in US and New York specially. The motion picture contains a colorful cinematography by Remi Adefarasin and nice production by the Allen's usual, Jack Rollins and Charles H. Joffe. The flick will like to Allen's faithful followers and Scarlett Johanssen fans.
