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…
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.
There's not one defining scene in Hannah and Her Sisters, but a whole bouquet of day-to-day, relatable moments giving range to the relationships of three sisters. Family dinners for Thanksgiving, martial fights and tribulations and the things you do with your siblings from shopping and going to lunch include something for everyone. Even the abnormal behaviours such as Mickey Sachs' (Woody Allen) hypochondriac tendencies and philosophical journey into spirituality and religion doesn't feel out of place. That's what makes this film shine, it takes the normal day and leaves it as it is; the only alteration is exposing the thoughts in our heads, adding an inner glimpse into the delightful and complex minds in the film.
Woody's monologue at the…
I've never seen a Woody Allen film. Of course I know who he is and the legend surrounding him, but I just never made the decision to see what he's about.
Hannah and Her Sisters is smart and it's about characters and family life and real thoughts that people have.
brb I've got like 50 movies to watch now.
I've heard again and again that Woody Allen has a reputation for writing great parts for women in a male-centered industry--most notably when Diane Keaton sang his praises at the Golden Globes last year when she accepted the Lifetime Achievement award on his behalf. Having personally bemoaned the lack of great parts for women myself, I became intrigued by his work.
It was even more interesting to me to see Mia Farrow and Allen himself take on the roles in a marriage that eventually crumbles. Last year, Farrow's son accused Allen of molesting her--a footnote that followed Cate Blanchett all the way to the Oscar stage, as she won for her portrayal of a spoiled socialite in a Woody Allen…
An exceptionally well-crafted and emotionally rich film experience - poignant, hilarious, saddening, and uplifting. One of Allen's very best.
Sometimes, Woody, you hit just a little too close to home.
You talented muddafucka, you.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
"The heart is a very, very resilient little muscle"
My favourite of all the Woodys...E.E. Cummings...Max Von, Mickey Caine and Barbara Hershey!!
From a cinematic point of view this movie is great, but, personally, I find it appalling, because 90% of it is about love affairs and cheating. I could barely make to the end of it.
El dios de las peliculas naturistas hace entrega de este clasico.
Lo magico q tiene Woody Allen es q nos presenta una ventana a diferentes situaciones completamente reales, o al menos el modo en q estan vividas es real, cosa q es un gran regalo.
Se nota q las actuaciones salen solas, se nota la comodidad de los actores con su guion y con la historia, se nota tanto, q lo q queda es una pelicula increiblemente amena y rica, simplemente xq es humana.
