Reviews

Academy Award-winning comedy drama from Woody Allen. Hannah (Mia Farrow), a wife, mother, successful actress and linchpin to her family, is married to Elliot (Michael Caine), but Elliot is in love with Lee (Barbara Hershey), Hannah's sister. Holly (Dianne Weist), Hannah's other sister, is jealous of Hannah, whilst Mickey (Woody Allen), Hannah's first husband, is convinced he is dying of a brain tumour. When Hannah's world is turned upside down by all her relatives' behaviour, she finds she has to choose between her family and her independence. Oscars were won by Caine, Wiest and Allen (for his screenplay).

A wonderful mix of moving and funny, thought provoking and silly. There's amazing acting all around from the first rate ensemble cast including Diane Wiest, Michael Caine (both of whom deservedly won Oscars), Max Von Sydow, Allen, Mia Farrow, Barbara Hershey etc.

(Mild spoiler) It features a rare movie happy ending that's actually earned!

This is probably the closest to Annie Hall of all Woody Allen films in the mix of wit, technical proficiency, sophisticated style, acting, emotion, etc. He takes a bevy of characters and creates a complex heartfelt portrait of family, lovers, friends, and artists that's funny but with insightful bite. A rare film that acknowledges how wonderful life is, without denying how hard it can be at the same time. Or at least how hard we find ways to make it.

5.0 out of 5 stars quintessential Allen 14 May 2012
By schumann_bg TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This is one of Woody Allen's most profoundly touching films, dating from the mid-eighties run of releases that were fully-integrated dramas rather than the more comic-sketch style of his earlier work. It feels a bit like a very comfortable brown leather chair that fits your shape and that allows you a more upholstered view of the world for the time you are in it. Not that Allen had abandoned his comic style; it is very much in evidence, but the context has more depth. All the performances are brilliant, starting with the three sisters - presumably based on Chekhov - and it is amazing how he writes the undercurrents in their relationships so seamlessly into the script. The lunch date with the three of them shows this. The friction between the Dianne Wiest character and Mia Farrow is conveyed so subtly and, in a way, quite painfully, yet it is contained within the broader comic framework of the film. Michael Caine has amazing comic timing, and his character's temptation to go astray forms the central plot strand. The way this is handled and resolved is very satisfying and you feel you have walked around the hidden recesses of the heart - and Manhattan - by the time the credits roll, but with a gentle, conciliatory spirit guiding you through, for all the hilarity along the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine cast armed with a fine script 14 Aug 2004
By Thomas Pots TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Here we have a classic Woody script, fuelled by mid-life angst and fraught affections. It follows the relationship woes, conflicts and rivalries of three sisters. Into their lives comes Michael Caine, Woody Allen, and Max Von Sydow, and so the plot revolves around the interaction of these six characters, as they each contemplate their lot in life. Of the three men, we focus mainly on Woody, who frets about the meaning of his life, we focus a little on Michael, and not at all on Max - possibly the most interesting of them because of his odd approach to society. It is one of my favourite movies. I must have watched it 40 times. It has subtlety and style, and the script has pace even when it deals with the issues of small lives. In the middle we also get a snippet of E E Cummings' poem "Somewhere I Have Never Travelled".
For some reason, Woody's movies never get the full DVD treatment, and here we receive no narratives, documentaries or interviews. The DVD menu is bland and cheaply done. We are not even offered Dolby sound, though I concede that the movie was originally recorded in mono. What we do get is the movie, dubbed in five languages (English, German, French, Spanish and Italian) and theatrical trailer.
Woody is an important figure in cinema but not huge box-office. That may explain why MGM lavishes so little attention on the DVDs of his work.

By Mr. D. Woods VINE VOICE
Format:VHS Tape
To my mind, only 'Annie Hall' has the beating of this excellent piece of drama. Mia Farrow, Dianne Wiest and Barbara Hershey are all wonderful as the three sisters and Woody himself is typically neurotic in his role as a hypochondriac comic writer. However, the best performance is from Michael Caine as the guilt-ridden husband who loves his wife (Farrow) but is infatuated with her beautiful and passionate sister (Hershey). Max von Sydow nearly steals the scene as Hershey's tempestuous artist lover and watch out for Carrie Fisher in a subsidary role. This is a beautiful film that is honest and yet uplifting in one motion, an absolute triumph in observational drama. If you're an Allen fan and do not yet own this film...well, what are you waiting for ? Buy it !

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Comedy From Woody Allen's Career Zenith 27 Dec 2012
By Philoctetes TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I am impressed by the lack of perception displayed by those individuals proffering 2 and 3-star reviews.

H&HS is an ensemble comedy with the trio of sisters at the centre of the action. Circling around them are their lovers and parents and Woody himself as Hannah's ex-husband Mickey. The movie begins at a Thanksgiving party and ends at another one a couple of years later.

Mia Farrow as Hannah does have a comparatively restrained role because she is the sister the others rely on for support; all the same, she does get to display a range of emotions including anger and frustration, happiness and patience. Both her sisters (Holly, Leigh) are flaky and vulnerable in different ways, Holly as an actress cum singer cum caterer cum etc, Leigh artistic in a more passive way, a muse rather than a creator. All three are the plausible consequences of two boozy unfaithful actor-parents.

The important point is that the ensemble is brilliant and the script is brilliant for creating so many interesting problems, such as Leigh's affair with Hannah's husband (Michael Caine) and Mickey's determination to find religion after a brush with death. Allen has created a whole raft of unique characters, even comparatively minor characters like the parents or Frederick the artist are memorable. He fuses dialogue with internal monologue and word cards like those seen later in episodes of Frasier. The great thing is, Allen's pov doesn't prevent his acknowledging other ideas and perspectives.

You'll see.
