      Blu B All Time Classic. It's amazing how with such an esemble of characters none of them blend in at all and keeps things simple. It moves very effortlessly between each characters dramas and really nails it when it wants to be funny with the trademark fast talking sleek Allen style of humor. It also has a low key happy ending as well. It's excellently made all around. Even the classical music is catchy and memorable to it. A sharp script that balances humor and drama perfectly. Everyone should give this a try. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/24/24 Full Review Alexsander F Um filme que me pegou do inicio ao fim, com ótimos diálogos o tempo todo, trata bem o existencialismo, as nossas aflições e de alguma forma mirabolante, termina com um final "feliz". O longa traz também ótimas referências de poetas e escritores. Lembra muito o diálogo dos filmes do Buñuel e do Bergman. Um filme sútil, porém profundo, que nos faz refletir bem sobre o que é à "vida". Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/11/24 Full Review nick s A little chaotic and a lot of character arcs to follow. However, there are a bunch of fun moments to reward the audience's patience. Good energy and movement in the scenes. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/11/23 Full Review Alejandro E Once again, Woody Allen resorts to his favorite topics without repeating himself: religion, psychoanalysis and Groucho Marx. On this occasion the core of the story is marriage; supported by an inimitable cast. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 11/26/23 Full Review matthias s "Hannah and Her Sisters" is a delightful rollercoaster of emotions woven into an engaging narrative. Woody Allen's masterful storytelling takes us on a journey through the tangled lives of three sisters, each facing their unique struggles and desires. The characters are portrayed with depth and wit, drawing you into their world effortlessly. The film's charm lies in its witty humor, heartwarming moments, and unexpected twists. Allen's signature blend of comedy and drama keeps you hooked from start to finish. The ensemble cast delivers stellar performances, especially Mia Farrow, Dianne Wiest, and Barbara Hershey, whose chemistry and rapport are a true highlight. While the film captures the complexities of human relationships, some subplots lack the same depth, leaving a few loose ends untied. Nonetheless, "Hannah and Her Sisters" remains an enjoyable and thought-provoking experience, exploring the intricacies of love, family, and the pursuit of happiness. A must-watch for fans of Woody Allen's unique storytelling style. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 11/11/23 Full Review Matthew B Hannah and Her Sisters was made at the height of Allen's popularity, and showed a director fully confident with his abilities. Perhaps thanks to the studio's insistence on a happy ending, it was one of Allen's most successful movies at the box office, and garnered three Oscars. The appeal of the film is easy to see. Influenced by Tolstoy and Chekhov, Allen tells the story of three sisters, their love lives and misadventures over a period of time that is topped and tailed by a Thanksgiving dinner. Scenes are divided with captions taken from the dialogue. An atmosphere of warmth is established with the use of jazz music, and some dignity and gravitas is added by the use of classical music too. As the title suggests, the lynchpin of the action is Hannah (Mia Farrow). She provides support, money and advice to help her two sisters who lack her poise and strength. Her sister Lee (Barbara Hershey) is in a stultifying relationship with the cold and intellectual artist, Frederick (Max von Sydow). To complicate matters further, Hannah's husband Elliot (Michael Caine) is besotted with Lee, and unable to stop thinking about her. He lends her books and talks about culture with her, but his attraction seems to be purely physical, and based on lust. There are problematic aspects to Woody Allen's films, but we do not have to share Allen's ideas to enjoy Hannah and Her Sisters. It is funny, sad and warm, and offers great variety of incident and characterisation. It is justly regarded as one of his best works.

      Dolores Barclay Associated Press Is Hannah and Her Sisters, the 14th movie written and directed by Allen, worth the wait? No. Oct 22, 2018 Full Review David Robinson Times (UK) Allen is one of the rare clowns with the gift of discovering the universal upon his own doorstep. Dec 31, 2017 Full Review Gene Siskel Chicago Tribune The marvel of Hannah and Her Sisters is just how many fully realized characters and relationships Allen is able to weave into the fabric of this extraordinarily well-written film. This script is one to be studied by aspiring filmmakers. Rated: 4/4 Feb 10, 2014 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...an erratically-paced yet mostly satisfying endeavor...
