Match point

I watched the film Match point on Sunday. A typical Woody Allen film contemplating the bigger things in life such as love, lust, deception and truth. As usual the the footage was fabulous. This time from London with views to die for.

Woody Allen films make you think and this one was no exception. Would you rather be lucky than good? A question asked in the beginning and in the end of the film. Would you? Because really, luck probably plays a bigger part in the events of our lives than we care to admit. Which refuting the comforting misconception that more of life is under our control than really is. It is all about luck, and which side the tennis ball lands on.
