i can't believe this man is thought to be a storytelling genius when will his reign of terror just END
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.
"Look at all these people, trying to stave off the inevitable decay of their bodies."

when will woody allen die
I still hold out hope that Woody Allen will make another film as effortlessly good as this one. Maybe he should move back to New York?
Simple but effective Allen. I like all the complicated relationship stuff, don't exactly like how everything is wrapped up.
Hannah and Her Sisters is Woody Allen at the top of his game. It has the intelligence, the complexity, the character insight of a great novel. You could write essays a plenty about each character and their motivations, their dilemmas, their place in the world, what their actions and reactions have to say about the society they live in. Each scene falls into the next so effortlessly, with such grace and deft precision without feeling anything other than organic, natural storytelling. It’s also riotously funny and beautifully acted. An absolute treat.
’ How the hell do I know why there were Nazis? I don't know how the can opener works!’
It does not get better than this film as far as Woody Allen goes. I know that some may disagree and just plainly not be fans of this comedic director, but I think this is Woody's best film. So yes, I Iove it!
It feels like I was watching this for three hours.
