Our Score
Although Woody Allen had still to acquire great technical strength as a film-maker, this was the movie where he found his own singular voice, a voice that echoes across events with a mixture of exuberance and introspection. Peppered with hilarious, snappy insights into the meaning of life, love, psychiatry, ambition, art and New York, this comic delight also gains considerably from the spirited playing of Diane Keaton as the kooky innocent from the Midwest, and Woody himself as the fumbling New York neurotic. The narrative runs parallel to the real-life relationship between the two leads (Keaton's real name was Hall and she was nicknamed Annie), and the film scooped four Oscars, including best film and screenplay (co-written with Marshall Brickman) for Allen, and best actress for Keaton.


A neurotic and self-obsessed New York Jewish comedian looks back on his affair with a scatterbrained singer, from their first encounter to the seemingly inevitable breakdown of communication, and tries to work out what went wrong. Oscar-winning romantic comedy, directed by and starring Woody Allen, with Diane Keaton, Shelley Duvall, Paul Simon, Christopher Walken and Carol Kane.
