Annie Hall (1977)

US 93m, Colour
Director: Woody Allen; Cast: Woody Allen, Diane Keaton, Tony Roberts, Carol Kane, Paul Simon, Shelley Duvall, Christopher Walken, Colleen Dewhurst

Annie Hall is an off-beat romantic comedy with Woody Allen at his neurotic best as Alvy Singer, a deeply troubled young man who desperately wants to understand what went wrong in his relationship with Annie – the love of his life. Unlike his earlier films which relied on a good deal of slapstick comedy, Annie Hall has a seriousness about it which came to reflect most of his later films. Despite the generally annoying performance of Diane Keaton, the character of Annie Hall provides the ideal foil for Woody’s obsessions. Arguable not Allen’s best film, it is certainly one of his most important (Klaus Ming July 2012).
