This is Allen’s first foreign-language film, set in contemporary Paris, but it touches on some of the filmmaker’s favorite themes and devices: chance and fate; love, infidelity and murder; what it all means once we enter the existential void that has fascinated Allen for eons (this is a filmmaker who for a time practically made a fetish of Ingmar Bergman, even employing the Swedish master’s cinematographer, Sven Nykvist). In Coup de Chance one character, a novelist who lives in a lushly lit loft, actually says, “What a farce life is. A black farce.” Quel dommage!
