Expanded from a half-hour comedy sketch, Zhenya Kiperman's over-the-top knockabout farce (2005) about an opera star playing Iago (Larry Pine), his wife (Michi Barall), a psychotic audience member (Keith Nobbs), a burglar (Kate Hodge), and various others might have made me laugh if the characters were sufficiently compelling or believable to transcend their plot functions. But it's typical of Kiperman that the moment the Empire State Building appears to establish the New York setting, we also hear a snatch of “Rhapsody in Blue” on the soundtrack; the occasional patches of Dixieland are no less Woody Allenish, at least in aspiration. 95 min.

Now Playing
