Product Description

In A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy, Woody Allen mixes Shakespeare, Ingmar Bergman, and the music and art of the turn of the century. Allen plays Andrew, an inventor, whose listless marriage to Adrian (Mary Steenburgen) has lost all erotic zip. He welcomes two pairs of friends to his country home: college professor Leopold (José Ferrer) and his fiancée Ariel (Mia Farrow), and dentist Maxwell (Tony Roberts) and his suffragette nurse Dulcy (Julie Hagerty). Before long, everyone's lusting after everyone else's partner, and the plot twists and turns to a happy and magical conclusion. It's a light and airy film, perhaps a deliberate break from Allen's previous production, the caustic Stardust Memories; but the tone may also be due to his new relationship with Farrow, who went on to star in Allen's films for the next 10 years. --Bret Fetzer

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, if slightly lesser, Woody Allen April 14 2011
By K. Gordon TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
A cute and charming romp -- a group of friends in the early 20th century
get caught up in a weekend of love and sex in the country.
Certainly enjoyable, if not really much more.

Gordon Willis's photography is nowhere near as amazing as his earlier
collaborations with Woody, and the film doesn't have any wildly funny
moments.

But the writing is witty, and the acting solid if not triumphant. It
just doesn't feel like a Woody Allen film somehow. More like a nice,
solid, unassuming French farce.

That's not a bad thing, and this film is still better than 99% of what
comes out of Hollywood, with a sweeter, more upbeat tone than usual for
Allen. It's just coming on the heels of masterpieces like 'Annie Hall',
'Manhattan', and 'Stardust Memories', and just before other great films
like 'Zelig' and 'Purple Rose of Cairo', it can't help but pale a bit
in comparison.

5.0 out of 5 stars a review from ontario Aug. 22 2010
By tedward
Format:DVD
This movie is a gem. If you like Woody Allen then this is one of his lightest and most beautiful movies. Mary Steenburgen is luminous and all the actors are well cast. It is a playful and very pretty movie, almost like an impressionist painting of a movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic comedy! Dec 30 2002
Format:DVD
I have always loved this movie and I was tremendously happy when it came out on DVD. It is a bit of a departure for Woody Allen, in that his character actually believes in a spirit world, whereas Woody Allen is always an atheist/agnostic in his movies, as he is in life. There are some genuinely hilarious moments, as well as a fine exploration of interpersonal relationships and marital fidelity.
Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars His most beautiful film? Feb. 13 2002
By jumpy1
Format:DVD
When I first saw Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy I was enchanted. A sophisticatedly sexy cast in delightfully alluring circumstances, set in a country house surrounded by foliage and wildflowers and the buzzing of nature. The prudish clothing worn at the turn of the century makes the behavior that follows even more fun. He fills the film with scenes that are just shots of the surrounding nature, with Mendelssohn's music in the background -- just beautiful. It's also one of his tightest scripts. Small cast, few sets ... a brilliant example for anyone who wishes to make good movies.
