Directed by Woody Allen
Produced in 1975
Main Language - English
Countries & Regions - American film
Allen's most lavish film, with spectacular exterior scenes dovetailing nicely with his usual interior set pieces and hilarious comic timing. Cinematic references to Bergman, and literary ones to Chekhov abound, topped by a justly famous bedroom farce seduction scene. After this film Woody vowed never to leave New York again to make another film.
Woody Allen's parody of Russian literature follows the adventures of the cowardly scholar Boris Dimitrovich Grushenko (Allen) after he is press-ganged into the Russian army during the Napoleonic Wars. Inadvertently becoming a hero, Boris returns home to marry his true love Sonia (Diane Keaton) and then embarks on an attempt to assassinate Napoleon, spoofing Tolstoy, Eisenstein and Ingmar Bergman along the way.
