Product Description

Product Description

The third installment of the 'Woody Allen Collection' featuring five popular films from the acclaimed writer-director. In 'The Purple Rose of Cairo' (1984), Cecilia (Mia Farrow) is a bored waitress who has a womanising slob for a husband and who regularly visits her local cinema in order to escape from the harsh realities of Depression-era America. One night, while rewatching her latest favourite, 'The Purple Rose of Cairo', the film's hero (Jeff Daniels) steps down from the screen and asks her to show him around. A fantasy love affair ensues, but the couple's bliss comes under threat from Cecilia's husband, the bemused actor whose fictional alter-ego has gone walkabouts, and the studio who want their character back on the screen. In 'Hannah and Her Sisters' (1986), Hannah (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 (Allen), Hannah's first husband, is convinced he is dying of a brain tumour. When Hannah's world is upturned by all her family's goings on, she finds she has to choose between her independence or them. 'Radio Days' (1986) is a series of vignettes depicting life in 1940s New York, a time of recession in which the radio played an important role in people's lives. Allen focuses upon a chaotic family in Brooklyn, contrasting their struggles with the lives of the radio stars who live uptown. In 'September' (1987), it is late summmer, and Lane (Farrow), still fragile after a nervous breakdown, is staying at her childhood home in Vermont. She has been having an affair with Peter (Sam Waterson), a writer who lives nearby, but now relations between them seem to have inexplicably cooled. When Lane's mother (Elaine Stritch) arrives with unexpected news, and the fate of her relationship with Peter becomes clear, Lane's emotional world is thrown into turmoil once again. Written and directed by Woody Allen. In 'Another Woman' (1988), Gena Rowland plays Marion, an academic who rents a flat in which to write a book on philosophy and becomes intrigued by conversations she overhears from a psychologist's office next door. One patient, Hope (Mia Farrow), has a particular effect on Marion forcing her to re-think many of her assumptions about her own life: her unhappy marriage; her feelings for another man (Gene Hackman); and her relationships with her best friend (Sandy Dennis) and brother (Harris Yulin).

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By K. Gordon TOP 500 REVIEWER on 4 July 2010
While not all of the very best of Allen's work, it includes one great film - 'Hannah and Her Sisters', a very, very good one in 'Purple Rose of Cairo', solid work in 'Another Woman' and 'Radio Days'. Only 'September' feels like a weak film to me, and even that seems a well intended experiment.

If you're an Allen fan, or a student of filmmaking in the last 40 years, this is a must have. For the more casual viewer, you might stick with 'Hannah' and 'Purple Rose'.

Of course, with an artist as prolific and varied as Allen, personal tastes will vary, and you may well find your reactions very different from mine.

Here are my thoughts (films rated on a 1- to 4 star scale);

The Purple Rose of Cairo (1985)***1/2 An utterly sweet, inventive and charming film that examines our love affair with the movies and our need to escape into fantasy. The central device of the wall breaking down between the characters in a film and those watching is great fun, and both Mia Farrow and Jeff Daniels do some of their very best work in this. That said, for me, it lacks a little of the depth and complexity of my very favorite of Allen's film. It's a little too cute and simplistic in the middle, although the first and last third, and the uncompromised ending are terrific. It doesn't quite hold up on multiple viewings
the way 'Annie Hall', or 'Crimes and Misdemeanors' or 'Hannah and Her Sisters' or 'Zelig' do. But even 2nd tier Woody Allen is better than almost anything else out there. And on a certain level, with great filmmakers its about personal taste, not right and wrong. (e.g. Is Chaplin's 'Modern Times' better than 'City Lights' ?) So, if you like Allen's work at all and you've never seen this, you owe yourself a look to decide for yourself.
