5.0 out of 5 stars "You should be the actress" 5 Mar 2005
There are several aspects that make this movie excellent, including the intelligent dialogues, the psychological aspects of the narration and the fact that a complex story can be presented in only eighty minutes. These are some of the reasons why Woody Allen is considered by many to be one of the most gifted directors ever. Of course, those that usually do not like Allen's style will not find solace in this movie, but the rest of you will probably appreciate the quality of this production.
Marion Post (Rowland) is a philosophy professor who is taking a leave of absence to write a book and who has rented an apartment to be able to do this peacefully and without any interruptions. The apartment is next door to the office of a psychiatrist and she realizes that she can hear the sessions through the air vents. At first she covers the vents to prevent invading the patients' privacy, but later she hears the sad voice of a woman (Mia Farrow) after one of the cushions covering the vent moves from its place. From that moment on she is hooked and cannot help herself, so she continues eavesdropping into the sessions of the mysterious woman.
Marion starts identifying herself with some of the accounts of this woman and understands that she may actually be dissatisfied with her life too, mainly with her choice of husband and career. From that point forward the psychological aspects of the story become the central focus around which the action revolves. The dreams, memories and reality of Marion's life interact with each other, making us doubt at times if certain events are really happening or not. The final result is an interesting look at the psyche of the main character and her relationship with others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Woody Allen's finest 3 Jan 2004
By A Customer
It's a shame that Woody Allen doesn't dare to make serious movies anymore. This is right up there with the best of Bergman, who has long influenced Allen's work. Everything about this film is perfect, with a sublime performance from Rowlands and Allen's masterful script which manages to be insightful, human and, despite his influences, entirely original.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Exercise in Reflection 2 Dec 2002
Possibly the least comic of Woody Allen's films, Another Woman nonetheless ploughs his familiar terrain of psychoanalysis in the setting of his beloved Manhattan. The chance (sic!) overhearing of a conversation in a neighbouring office sets off an investigation of the psyche of the accidental snoop (Gena Rowlands). In some ways the film is a cover version of(or perhaps a palimpsest on) Bergman's Wild Strawberries and it certainly draws heavily on the dream sequences. Those expecting a film in the tradition of Love and Death or Play it Again Sam should look elsewhere, but, for those who have kept the faith despite the scandals of recent years, this film gives more insight into the filmic sources of Allen's blackest humour than many of his funniest.

5.0 out of 5 stars not a comedy but one of his best 11 Feb 2012
By schumann_bg TOP 50 REVIEWER
Another Woman does that rare thing in cinema: it gives a voice to an intelligent person in mid-life considering the meaning of her own life and the choices she has made. You might think this would be a common thing to encounter but I can't think of any examples in British or American cinema where this is quite so clearly the case - except other films by Woody Allen (and John Huston's The Dead, from a male perspective). Here, however, the focus is largely on one character rather than the ensemble pieces he often makes. Gena Rowlands is brilliant in the part. She has the right voice for it and her general demeanor is absolutely on the mark for an academic-type. It is salutary to see how someone who has such insight into philosophy can be deluded about certain things and fallible in her perception of how others see her, as it suggests everyone is in the same boat really. No one can be too sure of these things because they are often so opaque; this seems to be one of the things the film illustrates. It is reminiscent of Bergman, but never goes too far in a Cries and Whispers direction, which makes it rather less harrowing to sit through. There is pain and confusion but it remains more contained. Allen himself has said he hasn't made anything that can stand comparison with figures like Bergman, but I think he may be being too modest! The performances are all strong; a lot of the film's success is down to Rowlands' remarkable screen presence, and she is well supported by Mia Farrow in a memorably plangent role, as well as Gene Hackman and Ian Holm.

4.0 out of 5 stars Allen's Masterly Human Study 2 Feb 2012
By Keith M TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Woody Allen's 1988 film Another Woman is a mature and perceptive study into human relations and emotions, delivered to the screen via a number of insightful performances from Allen's stellar cast. For those exclusively interested in Allen's comedic films, it should be noted that Another Woman is a near-barren territory when it comes to laughs, but instead delivers a totally convincing, and concise, emotional punch over its 77-minute duration. Once again, Allen's film clearly reflects his love of the films of Ingmar Bergman, and Another Woman's narrative has been likened to that of Bergman's Wild Strawberries.

As soon as Eric Satie's haunting music begins over the film's opening credits, it is clear that we're not in line for a barrel of laughs here. Another Woman charts the complex emotional development of recently-turned-50 philosophy teacher and budding writer Marian Post (brilliantly played by Gena Rowlands) as she attempts to come to terms with current and past marriages, and emotionally-charged experiences from her past. As she begins to doubt her current marriage to Ken (Ian Holm delivering a typically stalwart performance), she, by chance, happens to overhear (through an open ventilation duct in the apartment she has rented specifically for her writing) the impassioned outpourings of pregnant Hope (Mia Farrow, playing a character whose name is never spoken during the film), which are being delivered to her psychiatrist. Marian eventually realises that Hope's concerns are a mirror image of her own, even down to the emotional challenges associated with bringing new life into the world.
