"Rich! Deliciously eccentric! [A] brazen, irrepressible original!" -The New York Times

"Lovely! Poignant!" (The Wall Street Journal) and laugh-out-loud funny, Shadows and Fog confirms Woody Allen's "genius" with its brilliant portrait of the hopeless - but hilarious - tragicomedy of human existence. Boasting a dazzling "galaxy of stars" (Leonard Maltin) including Woody Allen, Mia Farrow, John Malkovich, Madonna, Donald Pleasence, Lily Tomlin, Jodie Foster, Kathy Bates, John Cusack and Julie Kavner, Shadows and Fog delights with "all the fantasy and seriousness, mysterious construction and burlesque complications of a Shakespeare comedy" (Le Monde).

Recruited by an inept mob of vigilantes, Kleinman (Allen), a cowardly clerk, is forced to search for a notorious murderer - only to stumble upon a feisty sword-sallower, Irmy (Farrow), running away from the circus, and her 'clownish' boyfriend (Malkovich). Determined to help Irmy, and eager to escape the vigilantes, Kleinman abandons his search for the killer… or so he thinks. Rushing headlong into the odious night, Kleinman and Irmy are launching into a mysterious world of shadows and fog… from which they may never emerge.
