dc.description.abstractUnlike Crimes and Misdemeanors or Match Point, which approached similar themes, Cassandra's Dream by Woody Allen (2007) had no good reviews. However, according to the author of this article, for those who analyse this screenplay from the perspective of the legacy of Greek tragedy in Western culture, its merits should not be underestimated. The frequent references to Greek tragedy, either titles or characters, prove that the American director wants to present Cassandra's Dream as a contemporary instance of Greek tragedy, and contemporary men and women as victims of an almost almighty and mocking tragic irony. The author's aim is also to show the evident similarities of this screenplay to Match Point and, above all, to Crimes and Misdemeanors, the matrix screenplay for the three films.eng
