An Exercise in Reflection,
This review is from: Another Woman [DVD] (DVD)
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.
