One of Woody Allen's great films. Indeed, he makes nary a misstep from beginning to end in charting the amorous affiliations of three sisters and their men over a two-year period.

Allen waxes snide, and, despite the huge cast, there's not much going on.
| Original Score: 2/5

Hannah is a masterpiece, a triumph of aesthetic balances like nothing the writer-director achieved previously or since, and a pinnacle of American moviemaking.

The plot could easily have been an afternoon soap opera, but Allen has infused it with wit, a superb cast and his usual 'the best direction is the least direction' style, so that the camera never calls attention to itself.

Despite Allen's wide-spread neuroses, he does not only a fair take on one woman's issues, but a handful of theirs.
| Original Score: 4/5

A dramatic comedy not quite like any other, and one that sets new standards for Mr. Allen as well as for all American movie makers.

No matter how passive a viewer you are, how much you attempt to dismiss it or judge its characters, Woody Allen reaches past those sleepy, cynical, or questioning eyes and makes you think as much as any film I've seen.

[Allen] treats each character with affection and good judgment as he deals with their weaknesses and sad-eyed smiles.
