the man who said I’d rather be lucky and
good so deeply into life people are afraid to face how great a part of life is dependent on luck it’s scary to think so much is out of one’s control there are moments in a match when the ball hits the top of the net and for a split second it can either go forward or fall back with a little luck it goes forward and you win or maybe it doesn’t and you lose

  8. The film is a debate with Fyodor Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment, which Wilton is seen reading early on, identifying him with the anti-hero Raskolnikov.

    Allen revisits some of the themes he had explored in Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989), such as the existence of justice in the universe. Both films feature a murder of an unwanted mistress, and "offer a depressing view on fate, fidelity, and the nature of man".

  9. In the end, the charges of the murder fall on a drug dealer found dead in the street, just with the ring in his pocket. The rebound of the ring on the balustrade, apparently unfavorable to Chris, has instead actually encouraged impunity and saves him (Luck!).

  10. Chris is suspected and, on the way to the police station, tries to get rid of the jewels by throwing them into the Thames, but a ring hits a balustrade (recall the first scene of the film: the ball that hits the net) and, without him noticing, bounces off the sidewalk.

  11. The first scene in the film shows us a net on which a tennis ball runs in both directions during a match. The voiceover from Wilton introduces its themes of chance and fate, which he characterizes as simple luck, to him all-important. The sequence establishes the protagonist as an introvert, a man who mediates his experience of the world through deliberation and positions the film's subjective perspective through his narrative eyes.

    Chris commits a double murder and, to simulate a robbery ended in tragedy, he steals the jewels of one of the victims.

  12. Critics in the United States praised the film and its British setting and welcomed it as a return to form for Allen. Allen was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.

  13. Match Point is a 2005 psychological thriller film written and directed by Woody Allen and starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Scarlett Johansson, Emily Mortimer, Matthew Goode, Brian Cox, and Penelope Wilton. In the film, Rhys Meyers's character (Chris Wilton) marries into a wealthy family, but his social position is threatened by his affair with his brother-in-law's girlfriend, played by Johansson. The film treats themes of morality, greed, and the roles of lust, money, and luck in life leading many to compare it to Allen's earlier film Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989).
