ABOUT THE FILM 

This vintage Woody Allen film, set in Moscow at the time of the Napoleonic invasion, received accolades from both critics and fans when released and remains a classic example of his early work. Its humour, ranging from outrageously zany to almost subtle, owes debts to Chaplin, the Marx Brothers and Bob Hope in its use of slapstick, situational humour, facial expressions, and wordplay. Boris (Woody Allen) and Sonja (Diane Keaton) plot to assassinate Napoleon but predictably fail, with unfortunate consequences for Boris, an accidental war hero and coward at heart.  Much of the dialogue was scripted as a comic parody of the works of classic Russian literature, using music by classic Russian composers for dramatic emphasis, and some scenes are a parody of classic films by Ingmar Bergman and others.

A brief introduction to the film will be presented before the 7 pm screening.
Complimentary tea and coffee and a cash bar are available.
We welcome you to join us for an informal discussion post-screening.


THIS IS A MEMBERS-ONLY SCREENING.
