SHADOWS AND FOG incorporates many of the ideas and themes explored in Woody Allen's earlier films such as the conflict between good and evil, man's helplessness and the existential complexities of life. In SHADOWS AND FOG, Allen blends the comic and dramatic styles in which he has worked over the years to create a fascinating tapestry of intricately interwoven relationships, set against a dark and moody European setting.
