Amiably laid-back family recollections of the early 1940s and the golden age of the wireless. Pot-pourri of modest charm held together by an armful of reliable performances from old lags and the usual flashes of wit and wisdom. A pleasant time-filler for both director and audience.

  • Directed by: Woody Allen
  • Written by: Woody Allen
  • Cast: Woody Allen, Charlotte Rampling, Tony Roberts

A famous director of comedy films undergoes much soul-searching when the public and critics fail to appreciate his attempts at serious cinematic statement. Occasionally shrill and self-pitying autobiographical movie.

Annie Hall

  • 15
  • Directed by: Woody Allen
  • Written by: Woody Allen, Marshall Brickman
  • Cast: Woody Allen, Diane Keaton, Tony Roberts, Carol Kane, Paul Simon, Shelley Duvall, Christopher Walken, Colleen Dewhurst

Two decades before Sex And The City had its first orgasm, Annie Hall was laying bare the mores of modern, urban romance to devastating effect while also zoning in on the specific psyche of Allen Konigsberg: anti-Semitic paranoia, metaphysical angst, the search for true love. There's a highly charged on-screen electricity…

  • US
  • 1h 26min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Herbert Ross
  • Cast: Woody Allen, Diane Keaton, Tony Roberts.

Plagued with uncertainties about the possible course of a relationship, Woody relies heavily on the advice of personal mentor Bogey. Engaging homage to the silver screen romances of days gone by, with the addition of Allen's neurotic humourous edge.
