If you love watching movies then you have to watch "The Purple Rose of Cairo". It's sweet, funny, nostalgic and it overall it just nails what a good film is about.

Certainly a unique and interesting film, The Purple Rose of Cairo features a terrific performance from Jeff Daniels and Mia Farrow, who have terrific chemistry with one another. Strongly written, lively, funny, and enjoyable, Woody Allen isCertainly a unique and interesting film, The Purple Rose of Cairo features a terrific performance from Jeff Daniels and Mia Farrow, who have terrific chemistry with one another. Strongly written, lively, funny, and enjoyable, Woody Allen is as good as ever in this film as writer/director. However, the film feels incredibly slight. It just feels like a diversion more than anything else, instead of a truly engaging Woody Allen film. This may be because it is so short at just an hour and twenty minutes. It does not get a chance to really sink too deeply into its characters and is quite skin deep in its characterizations. Though that portion is well done, I do wish it was longer and allowed me to follow these characters longer to truly figure out more than one-dimension of them. That said, this film is enjoyable and incredibly well done. Often cited as one of his best films, I do not necessarily agree, though I do really like the film. Expand

Woody Allen is amazing.
I thing he is free. Free from every thing.
Look at his films, there is no logical things in his films. every thing in his films is possible! He always surprised his audience. There is too different between him and

He always surprised his audience.
There is too different between him and Charlie Chaplin but I want to say that Woody Allen is the best comedian after Charlie Chaplin.

It is a unique concept that is filled with light comedy and romance. I really loved the characters in the movie theater. They were the ones that stole the show.

Allen at his most romantic (in terms of romanticism) about film, TPROC is as sweet as a film could be, without being sugary. It's funny, sad, romantic, and quite zany, and catches Allen at his most Chaplinesque.

I feel I'm about using the word 'magical' in a review, but I'll generate a substitute for the word, and use that instead. Expand

Woody Allen never ceases to amaze me. His imagination and humor are so admirable. This film is so unusual and incredibly creative. Enthralling even. It never fails to fascinate and in many ways it is brilliant. My only gripe is the two Woody Allen never ceases to amaze me. His imagination and humor are so admirable.

I think Mia Farrow and Jeff Daniels are too bland, better casting would have helped. The rest of the cast is terrific though, especially Zoe Caldwell. Expand
