Hannah and Her Sisters Movie Review
Allen plays his neurotic self to perfection, this time a hypochondriac TV executive and ex-husband of Hannah (Farrow). Michael Caine, though, steals the show as Hannah's current husband who falls in love with sister Lee (Hershey), herself living with an aging, pedantic shut-in (Max Von Sydow).
The acting is sublime, but the little touches push Hannah to greatness. Allen's photographic compositions are among his best ever here, spying on Caine as he makes eyes at Hershey from afar while we play along with the game. His musical selections, always impeccable, are fantastic here, with Harry James' trumpet music belting out the emotion.
An unequivocal classic (and winner of three Oscars -- for Wiest, Caine, and Allen's screenplay) that any Allen fan must own. Or anyone with a family, for that matter.
Part of The Woody Allen Collection, Set 3.
