As you would expect from Allen, the film is sleek, well-written and stylish. Blanchett's performance is 5 star, full of humour but heartbreaking at the same time. The film a very much above average 3 star with some outstanding supporting roles.

I can see why she won the Oscar for this mesmerising acting performance, she almost single handedly dominated the film.

This is a grim, but wonderfully acted, story about Jasmine, an unquestioning, super-rich, society wife who by a deliberate act of malice against her unscrupulous, unfaithful, con-man husband, causes her world to completely unravel, leaving her husband dead (from suicide in prison) and her with nothing. The film is about her attempts to put some of the pieces together after having a severe mental breakdown which was treated (we learn) by ECT. She is on the verge of madness throughout the film, covered by a seemingly sophisticated, upmarket veneer which she uses to function. Nevertheless, her attempts at re-educating herself and learning skills for the jobs market are hampered both by her poor mental state and what seems like confusion and memory loss, which could have been left by the ECT. She falls back on trying to find another rich husband to care for and pamper her as she has been used to. All goes horribly wrong. Although Jasmine is not a sympathetic character who seems to have learned nothing from her experiences, I did strangely feel sympathy for her and her predicament. The film is very interesting and thought provoking, wonderfully constructed and acted. The other thought I've recently had is that unfortunately no one was seeing Jasmine's madness (probably because of cultural factors) and taking her in hand either by seriously talking with her, checking on her medication or getting her more mental health support (ideally counselling). The film is a Greek tragedy.

A more serious film from Woody Allen, Blue Jasmine tells the story of Jasmine, a spoilt New York Socialite forced to move in with her sister in San Francisco after she loses her entire fortune after her husband is arrested for fraud. While not up there with Woody Allen's great films like Annie Hall or Manhatten, Blue Jasmine is one of his better recent films with excellent all round performances especially Cate Blanchett in the lead role and Alec Baldwin as her husband who appears via flashback. While Jasmine is a completely unsympathetic character and a snob at least to me anyway, it's Blanchett's superb performance one of her best in fact, that keeps you watching.

This is a real tour de force by CB. Excellent movie and Woody Allan back on form. Thoroughly enjoyed the movie and would recommend.

Mesmerizing Cate. That's all I can say. It is one of her best performances. It's a beautifully acted emotional film.

Woody Allen can be compared to a well know beef extract: You either hate him or you love him ! He's llike a dog's hind leg- he's up and down and with Blue Jasmine he's really up and how! A marvellous set of characters with Cate Blanchette outstanding in the lead. Probably the best Allen of all time
