I thought while watching this that Woody Allen was right back on form: there was no-one impersonating him (now that he's too old to play himself), the acting was of the highest quality (especially by Sally Hawkins) and the story really breathed. Then the last third of the film sees the whole structure come tumbling down as the relationship problems of both main characters are resolved in moments with no depth involved at all in how it is done. This is when you get to wondering again about Woody Allen's output being so great: that he would take more care if he didn't always have the next one coming right up.
