VIENNALE ERÖFFNUNGSGALA

Match Point tells the story of an Irish tennis pro who settles in London, marries the bosss daughter, impregnates the former girlfriend of his new brother-in-law, and then grows desperate at the thought of losing his big job and chauffeured car and the weekends in the country. The movie represents a break for Allen from his routine of filming a movie every year in or near Manhattan. He shot it in London, with a mostly British cast. The movie is rich in humor and irony, like a literate Hitchcock story, and tension coils tightly under the surface as the young man becomes a liar, a betrayer of trust, and finally a man who thinks it might be convenient to commit murder. (Roger Ebert)
