Alice Tate, mother of two, with a marriage of 16 years, finds herself falling for the handsome sax player, Joe. Stricken with a backache, she consults Dr. Yang, an oriental herbalist who realizes that her problems are not related to her back, but in her mind and heart. Dr. Yang's magical herbs give Alice wondrous powers, taking her out of well-established rut.

Put it on not knowing what it was exactly as it was on a play list. After a minute I thought who's this woman doing a dodgy Woody Allen impersonation? Sure enough I checked and it was an Allen movie. I like his movies. Didn't like Farrow's work with the dialogue in this. Very unnatural. A character I never warmed to. The dialogue itself is below average for Allen and the plot is sleepy. Not one of Allen's better movies.
