Storyline

In Manhattan, the British limousine driver Alfie is surrounded by beautiful women, most of them clients, and he lives as a Don Juan, having one night stands with all of them and without any sort of commitment. His girl-friend and single-mother Julie is quite upset with the situation and his best friends are his colleague Marlon and his girl-friend Lonette. Alfie has a brief affair with Lonette, and the consequences of his act forces Alfie to reflect and wonder about his life style. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

During the scene at the florist's shop (supposedly in downtown Manhattan but filmed in Liverpool), there is a shot looking into the shop from outside. A couple of small Regency-style terraced houses, clearly inappropriate for the film's setting, can be seen reflected in the window. See more »

Less Than Halfie

In the words of Sean Penn "Jude Law is one of the best actors we got" I agree, so what the hell is he doing? The film is so ill conceived that I'm not even going to talk about it, but I'm going to talk about Jude Law because I love him. I'm also considerably older than him and I love movies and great actors and on the screen, great actors can also be great stars and when great stars are also great actors then you have Spencer Tracy, Montgomery Clift, Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Johnny Depp, Daniel Day Lewis even Sean Penn and a few others. Jude Law had, from day one (a few days ago) all the elements that made the above mentioned actors what they were, what they are, what they always will be. I'm not about blame the failure of this film on Jude Law, no, of course not but "Alfie" comes out on a year when we've had several Jude Law movies all of them bearing Jude Law's name, but just the name. Not a glimpse of the Law of Mr Ripley or Wilde not even Gattaca. In "Closer" he is very good but he couldn't afford not to be. Great words and Mike Nichols. No, I want to see Jude Law in dangerous projects with unpredictable, brilliant, lyrical, powerful directors. I want to see him in all his glorious promise. Is that too much to ask?
