5.0 out of 5 stars If you aren't in love with Woody Allen you'll be in love with Diane Keaton., 15 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Annie Hall [DVD] [1977] (DVD)
This film started my love affair with Woody Allen. He was always in the periphery of my circle of reference but it wasn't until a few months ago that I bit the bullet and bought Annie Hall. It sat with my other DVDs until I decided to watch it and this was probably one of the best decisions I've made this year.

It's a genuinely touching love story, the original rom-com if you will, you have to think that this film was made before all the others of it's genre, if it came out now you could argue it was formulaic but it isn't, it invented the formula because it works so well. The main character bumbles through life being angular and awkward, nervous and paranoid but ultimately loveable and he stumbles upon Diane Keaton's character who is naive and sweet. If you don't see yourself in one character or the other then you're not looking hard enough. There are some classic moments in this film that you'll recognise from all the references you've heardand there are some scenes I go onto YouTube and watch when I'm feeling down that cheer me up no end.

It's a totally beguiling, charming and awkward film in all the best meanings of those words.
