Hollywood Ending (2002)

Type :   Production countries :  


Val Waxman is a one-time prestigious film director lately reduced to overseeing cheesy television commercials in order to pay his bills and support his current live-in girlfriend . When he is thrown off his latest effort , he desperately seeks a real movie project.

Out of the blue, Val receives an offer to direct a big-budget blockbuster movie to be set in New York City. However, the offer comes from his former wife and her current boyfriend , the studio head who stole Val's wife from him.

Pushed by his agent , Val agrees to the project, but a psychosomatic ailment strikes him blind just before production is to begin. The movie plays out with an aging director struggling to regain his vision, both metaphorically and literally. It is easy to envision the movie as a not-so-subtle metaphor for Allen's real-life struggles during the 1990s to regain his early momentum in the film-making milieu.

In the end, Val's project costs $60 million -- and flops. Nevertheless, Val enjoys a "Hollywood ending" of his own -- his movie is a hit in France. Winning his wife back, he happily proclaims, "Thank God the French exist."
