Alfi Selinger is the alter ego of director Dani Levy, and any suggested references to the Alvy Singer of Woody Allen’s Annie Hall are not accidental. Alfi Selinger, filmmaker, is a man in crisis: his kids can’t stand him, his wife is cheating on him and his bank has lost his investments-including his mother’s holocaust reparations. Meanwhile, Alfi is trying to make a film that would be a comic treatment of the Danish controversy over the Muhammed cartoons. Lines between fantasy and reality become blurred. With scenes that are reminiscent of both Fellini’s 8 1/2 and Woody Allen’s Stardust Memories, some of the most “laugh out loud” moments involve absurd sequences from Alfi’s personal life including his daughter videotaping his colonoscopy.
