  • Smart and engaging, but too many meandering breeze-shooting sequences.

    January 9, 2009 | Rating: 3/5
  • It's never enough to establish any sensitivity or social pertinence beyond the trifling tiffs which are playing out on screen.

  • There's only so much twentysomething navel-gazing one can listen to before wanting to slap some sense - and some fully formed sentences - into them all.

  • There is something teeth-grindingly cutesy about the whole thing, reaching epic levels of dippiness in the, ahem, nude trumpet-playing scenes. That makes it sound interesting, come to think of it, and perhaps it is.

Audience Reviews for Hannah Takes the Stairs

  • May 30, 2009
    shot on dv, and confined to rooms, a entertaining look at friendship and relationships, as a writer breaks up with boyfriend and then rather quickly hooks up with her writing partners, very down to earth acting, and situations, it works well, all actors are worth watching and do good work,

    Very few of the characters were compelling enough to make the improvised, handheld, do-it-yourself style work. But Hannah is one of them.
