Interiors (Woody Allen, 1978)

***
USA



Woody Allen's first stab at glum Bergmanesque drama is so meticulously patterned after the work of his idol that he allows nothing of his own to slip in. So, it's all artifice - hollow imitation, Bergman without the tension. That it's compelling at all is thanks to the performers, but Allen himself was onto something infinitely worthier when he reworked the scenario into a comic melodrama eight years later.
