Picks and Pans Review: My Blueberry Nights

UPDATED 04/14/2008 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 04/14/2008 at 01:00 AM EDT

Norah Jones, Jude Law, Natalie Portman, Rachel Weisz| PG-13 |



During this movie's many meal scenes, you spend more time lusting after the contents of the characters' plates than listening to what they're saying. My Blueberry Nights (the title refers to blueberry pie), the first English-language film by Chinese director Wong Kar Wai (In the Mood for Love), is gorgeously shot but as vacant as its questing heroine (Jones, merely adequate in her acting debut). She hits the road and meets loudly colorful types (Weisz and Portman), all the while sending rambling updates on postcards back to Law, a cafe owner carrying a torch for her back in Manhattan. Me, I just want the pie.
