Hannah and Her Sisters
Between two Thanksgivings, Hannah's husband falls in love with her sister Lee, while her hypochondriac ex-husband rekindles his relationship with her sister Holly.
Here's what's weird: I can now see in this old favorite the seeds of everything I dislike about his recent films. Much of the dialogue is clunkily expository and/or tin-eared; supporting characters (e.g. Daniel Stern's gauche rock star) often function as straw-man caricatures; source music is used as a cudgel. Yet it's mostly glorious, and I spent the whole damn movie trying in vain to pinpoint the difference. In the end, I think Tarantino may be right, at least in this case and some others: Woody's just old now, and his work has become correspondingly creaky, with its highs diminished and its flaws hugely magnified. In any case, he was unmistakably at the top of his game here—though he's…
What can I say about Hannah and Her Sisters? I think this is my second favorite Woody Allen film after Annie Hall!
The movie is a feast of witty, hilarious dialogue (as you would expect from Woody Allen) and vivid characters that hooked me right off the bat. Allen makes an engaging story out of ordinary people and strikes a nice balance between drama and comedy. And once again, he effortless pulls me into his romanticized version of New York City to tell a story about four sisters and four men whose lives are intertwined through love and secrets.
Allen deals with a lot of characters and subplots in the movie, but he weaves each narrative thread together in a…
Woody Allen really is a fantastic writer and director, we all know that. He is always able to create amazing characters, fantastic dialogues, simple stories with situations that could happen and real life and none of his stories ever felt forced. All feel real and actually very believable. Hannah and Her Sisters is no exception.
An amazing comedy/drama script, that tell us the stories of multiple characters all connected because of three sisters Hannah, Lee and Holly. Family interations, romances, dramatic discoveries or even hilarious moments it's what you are going to find throughout the story.
All of the performances are absolutely fantastic, everyone is able to play their parts in the perfect way possible. Dianne Wiest, Woody Allen himself…

"Jeez, I should stop ruining my life searching for answers I'm never gonna get, and just enjoy it while it lasts. And after all, who knows, I mean maybe there is something, nobody really knows. I know 'maybe' is a very slim reed to hang your whole life on, but that's the best we have. And then I started to sit back, and I actually began to enjoy myself."
Hannah and Her Sisters contains one of the best ensemble casts that I've seen in a while. No offense, August: Osage County, but for a good time I'll take Woody, Farrow, Fisher, Caine, O'Sullivan and Max von Sydow any…
On some days, this is my favorite Woody film, edging out Annie Hall just slightly and the tipping point has to be Michael Caine. He transforms himself into the antithesis of Jack Carter. The Woody dialogue rolls off his tongue so naturally, it's a shame they never worked together again. Every little mannerism and insecurity goes noticed, but it's never pompous or showy. He's playing a man in midlife crisis with secrets and desires that he cannot express clearly and he is a fully fleshed character.
The whole cast is on fire. All their interactions and inner monologues are lived in and their midlife woes and sorrows feel instinctive and driven and they all have arcs that leave them somewhere…
This movie is full of great scenes and great performances
Woody Allen's monologue at the end steals the film.
Another masterpiece by Woody Allen.
It's a Woody Allen film, so of course the titular sisters' stories revolve around men, but it's a great film nonetheless.
This was a really well done film. The acting, writing and direction were all really top notch. One of Allen's best films I've seen so far.
Definitely one of Woody Allen's finest moments and Top 5 for me personally. Its three Oscars (Sir Michael Caine's Best Supporting Actor, Dianne Wiest's Best Supporting Actress and Woody Allen's Best Screenplay--his second of three wins; the others being 'Annie Hall' and 'Midnight in Paris') amongst seven nominations (the others being: Best Picture--lost to 'Platoon'; Best Director--Allen lost to Oliver Stone for 'Platoon'; Best Art Direction-Set Decoration--lost to 'A Room with a View'; and Best Editing--lost to 'Platoon') were very well deserved. A fine work that thirty years after the fact hasn't really aged badly. Explicitly recommended.
I love Woody Allen because he takes all my insane worries and thoughts and puts them in action. He makes me feel less crazy, less norotic. And that's what this movie does. From woody himself playing a nervous hypochondria to Lee's endless search for love. Along with sharing my fears and sadnesses, Woody Allen is the constant reason on why I haven't given up on love. Because he has made it clear that LOVE is not something you can hide from, it follows you everywhere. It consumes you. And fighting that off only makes a person more miserable.
Sorry for this silly rant-
It's a classic Woody film to say the least.
She is crazy about me but I seem to have fallen out of love with her
Without a doubt one of Woody Allen's best written screenplays. The structure reminded me of Tolstoy's big novels full of rich characters that get a few chapters each alternatingly until you get the whole story. If I'm not mistaken I believe Allen even said he was inspired by "Anna Karenina". The characters feel truly fleshed out and the dialogues are funny, touching, witty and sometimes powerful. The breakup scene between Max von Sydow and Barbara Hershey's characters is a standout moment in the Allen filmography. In many ways this is Allen's own "Fanny and Alexander".
Mia Farrow is horrible (as usual) and has a hint of a mustache.
I'm still searching for another great Woody Allen movie. I think this one is good but it doesn't have anything going for it that makes it stand out that much, compared to his other films. It's nice and funny but it just wasn't magnificent.
