Match Point is "a winning combination of sex, mystery, brilliant writing and first-rate acting that all adds up to one of the most erotic and exhilarating movies in years." (Maxim). Chris (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) is being torn apart by his desire for two very different women. Marrying Chloe (Emily Mortimer) will bring him a life of wealth and success, but his true passion lies with his brother-in-law's fiancee, the stunningly sensuous but unpredictable Nola (Scarlett Johansson). Pulsing with tension, Match Point rides the dangerous line between ambition and obsession to an ending as surprising as it is chilling.

The characters in this movie seem to act normally to the many incidents dealing with moral actions and unfaithfulness. Surprisingly, no one gets caught and the protagonist gets away with, lituraly, "murder! " This is another of many tails of how love can blind and persuade a person beyond reasonable logic; beyond thoughts of the future, only instant desire and gratification.
Annie Hall makes you want to visit NYC. Midnight in Paris makes you want to fly off to Paris. This one will make you dream of London. The cities are always the top stars in Woody Allen films.
You can read what the movie is about from the other reviewers. I'm just going to tell you that it is a good movie with an unexpected twist towards the end. This isn't really one of WA's light romantic comedies. ScarJo shows that she CAN act by playing a young American in London trying to pursue an acting career. (I didn't like Scar Jo in Woody Allen's Scoop, so I was going to give up on her if her acting was bad here. It wasn't.)
I bought this DVD, Used, on Amazon from a Seller who said it was Like New. It was. It was also a bargain. It played flawlessly.
It's a very good movie. It isn't your typical WA film and that will surprise you but you will still be satisfied.
Buy it Used on Amazon. :-)
Had I not known before I saw this movie that it was a Woody Allen's, I probably could not have guessed it. To me, it was a strong departure from Allen's style of the previous 3 decades.
The "day-to-day" interaction of the characters is very interesting. It makes one think deeply about the characters' motivations, and about the interactions between their "ideals", their needs, their perceptions of the practicalities of their lives, and their survival instincts. As the various characters are in very different situations, and as some are "good" and others are "not", really ? , "survival" can be a bit relative here.
But more important, without giving away too much of the plot, is how interesting the way Woody Allen drives the underlying theme, of how much randomness (or "luck" if you prefer) there is in life, to an "unconventional" end.
When you watch the movie, note when the tennis ball hits the net and then ends on the one side of the court that it probably should not have. This is where the seed of the movie theme is planted. The build up of that theme continues in a subtle way as Allen weaves it in the "day-to-day" interaction of the characters, which in itself, as I said, I found very interesting. That theme continues to the "unconventional" end of the movie. This is not how movies are "supposed" to end. It is "unfair" that "match point" goes to the undeserving.
This is a critical look at the random component in our lives that is not usually looked at in this manner, perhaps because it offends our sensibilities to think that in reality some match points do go to thoes who "should not" win.

Mach Point follows a story of former professional player turned trainer at rich London tenis club. He meets here rich english lad with whom he becomes friendly. He introduces him to his sister whom he later marries and her rich father sets him up for executive job at one of his companies, which makes a tenis player a rich man. He develops an affair with Scarlet Johanson who was originaly a fiance of rich english man whose sister he later married. He has great deal of passion for her not as nearly as much passion for his wife. Scarlet becomes pregnant and demands that he leaves his wife just like that other woman in Crimes and Missdemenors. He is not willing to leave her because of the good life his new marriage is provided him, not because of his wife so he kills Scarlets's character and he gets away with it.
I love the way Allen explores an idea and brings it to life. Scarlet Johansen is well suited to his material.
