When Harry Met Sally...
Can two friends sleep together and still love each other in the morning?
Will sex ruin a perfect relationship between a man and a woman? that's what Harry (Billy Crystal) and Sally (Meg Ryan) debate during their travels from Chicago to New York. And eleven years and later, they're still no closer to finding the answer. Will these two best friends ever accept that they're meant for each other...or will they continue to deny the attraction that's existed since the first moment When Harry Met Sally?
It had to be you, Rob Reiner. It had to be you, Nora Ephron. It had to be you, Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan. Why? Because you made it ring true.
True. It’s a simple as that. Now, there are dozens of romcoms that I’ve loved from the past. Bringing Up Baby, His Girl Friday, The Philidelphia story, The Apartment, Irma la Douce, and of course, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Annie Hall, and The Graduate. I’ve never identified with those characters; I’ve just bought into their story; suspended disbelief just enough to believe in them.
When Harry Met Sally is different. Rather than having the feeling I was buying into fiction, I had the genuine sense that these two characters were…
From the director of Stand by Me, The Princess Bride & A Few Good Men, When Harry Met Sally is an elegantly crafted, cleverly composed & wonderfully narrated romance comedy that raises a pretty interesting question of if a man & a woman can just remain friends without sex coming in their way and also covers many other fascinating ideas about relationships with a zestful spirit & endless warmth.
The story of When Harry Met Sally follows its titular characters from the time they finish school & share a cross-country drive to New York City to the next 12 years or so when they keep bumping into each other on chance encounters, eventually become friends & try to help each other through the various hardships of…
As a romantic comedy When Harry Met Sally is undoubtedly held as one of the most well-known, and well-loved of them all. The film improves on a rewatch - maybe because I actually understood the Casablanca references - but I also felt like a lot of the humour was able to hit better than my first watch last year. Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal are charming as Sally and Harry, and as a couple - have great chemistry which drives the film really nicely. The fact that this 1989 film realises that there doesn't need to be a 6-pack, nicely chiseled, handsome man playing the romantic lead - allows for the authenticity of dialogue and scenes to characterise Harry and Sally - rather than being stuck in the 'love at first sight' cliché. Looking forward to visiting this again soon, and hopefully loving it more, as I did this time round.
There are certain films that have an honesty to them that hits the nail on the head every time. Nora Ephron's writing is sublime and her refreshing take on relationships struck a chord with a late-eighties audience that found Rob Reiner's romantic comedy the most intelligent of the decade. It was a film that had that perfect chemistry between its leads and both Billy Crystal's and Meg Ryan's best ever performances. They sparkle like the New York backdrop that sets the tone for a film with just that sprinkling of magic. Rob Reiner's film is the romantic comedy that every other has been measured against for the last twenty-six years, it's that good. The question the film asks of course…
When Harry Met Sally is widely considered one of the best romantic comedies ever produced, and no wonder why. This one is from the time when there were lots of interesting romantic comedies, and it was one of the ones which stood out the most, especially because of its unique charm and because, generally, it was handled wonderfully.
There are not many films which can treat friendships and romantic relationships so well and so delicately. Can a man and a woman be friends without falling in love? Is friendship stronger than sexual attraction? What is the difference between love and friendship? These are some of the difficult questions When Harry Met Sally dares to answer (even though, sometimes, they can't),…
Review In A Nutshell:
Loneliness is a painful experience, it is a position I have found myself for much of my life, and by this I mean romantically; love has always been something that I have failed at, previously it wasn’t for a lack of trying, I have pushed myself in areas of casual intimacy with other people, only to find myself silently rejected, possibly due to the intensity of my determination or I simply lack the appealing exterior qualities to create any sort of attraction. Though romantically isolated, I have never allowed this emotion to consume me, to prevent me from undertaking my…
Taking the essence of what made Annie Hall so memorable, but instead balancing the focus between both individuals and their perspectives, When Harry Met Sally navigates its two leads through the inevitable pitfalls of dead-end relationships, pseudo-philosophies, and the stunning moment of epiphany which changes everything... in this way, it gives us the blueprints for the formulaic romantic-comedy as we know it today.
It's a beautiful story which could have easily come across as pretentious and preachy in lesser hands, but Rob Reiner is subtle with how he navigates Nora Ephron's screenplay and the result is a timeless meditation on relationships and what it means to be in love. And of course, Billy crystal and Meg Ryan give the movie not only its comedy, but its soul.
Simply fantastic! A must-see!
"I love that you get cold when it's 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it's not because I'm lonely, and it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here…
It's a bit naff. I'm not sure what it is about Rob Reiner films that just feel so fake to me. But the romance between the leads is believable and the narrative is a lot more original than most romantic comedies. It's acclaim is understandable.
Galeotto fu un viaggio in auto da Chicago a New York per i due giovani sconosciuti Harry e Sally. Caratteri apparentemente incompatibili: lei precisa e decisa, lui cinico e depresso. Dovranno incontrarsi e separarsi a intermittenza a distanza di anni prima di diventare amici, e vedere definitivamente distrutte le loro vite prima di innamorarsi.
Quando Harry incontra Sally, entrambi dànno il peggio di sé. Per la prima parte del film questo gioco del rifiutarsi serve a una serie ormai famosa di ciniche sentenze sull'amore, l'amicizia, il sesso, il matrimonio e qualunque altra cosa Harry e Sally sono d'accordo di non essere l'uno per l'altra e l'altro per l'una. La seconda parte, entrati i protagonisti nei trenta, sbugiarda queste certezze giovanili.…
I'm very picky on romance films, but there's just something about this film that charms me so much.
The charisma of Crystal and Ryan, along with fantastic dialogues by Nora Ephron, make this one of the most charming and engaging romantic comedies in recent cinema. The orgasm scene is already a classic.
Nope. There's no Carrie Fisher outside the Star Wars.
Saw this after many years of seeing it...still as cute as ever.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
No idea if there is a list for this yet, but I think I will keep this as kind of…
