Terribly underrated by the critics, this film needs to be taken as the third part of Woody Allen's morality trilogy (assuming that there are no more films to come from Woody in this genre) that began with the brilliant Crimes and Misdemeanors and Match Point. [Note: there may be some spoilers that follow] Obviously influenced greatly by Dostoevsky (specifically, Crime And Punishment), Woody is still exploring whether man can get away with crime as long as his conscience does not betray him. In Match Point he adds the element of fate. In Crimes and Match Point he focuses on a single criminal, but in Cassandra's Dream the crime is committed by two men and we see one betrayed by conscience, the other not. Woody takes theme this to a logical and staisfying conclusion. Ewan MacGregor and Collin Farrell are both terrific as the brothers, and Tom Wilkinson is superb, as usual, in his short but crucial role.
