Shadows and Fog

This comedy from Woody Allen has little plot and not enough of Allen's famous style of wit, but it has its moments. It's set in London where a killer is on the loose. Woody Allen is summoned to help capture the killer, but exactly what specific task he's supposed to partake in, he's not sure. However, he meets the sword swallowing circus performer, Mia Farrow, who is having troubles on her own. This film doesn't come close to the rather solid par Allen set for himself throughout the years, but great masters are entitled to their downfalls. It's really not all that bad; leave it for Allen fans. An interesting cast full of cameos!
