A laugh or two, and then your through
Not a bad movie. Not a particularly good one either considering the impeccable cast. Has all the standard Woody Allen features: successful urban types who are wondering about the meaning of life, why they are not happy, and why they cannot sleep with the men or women they want. Then overlay with a few dozen shots of New York, jazz tunes from the 1940's and a few references to classic cinema and world philosophy. Mia Farrow does a good job, but better in Radio Days and Purple Rose. Well worth seeing if you are student of American cinema of the 1980's or a die hard Woody Allen fan. But Annie Hall, Radio Days, Broadway Danny Rose are better WA films.
Always enjoy seeing this one
- Kathryn West
Thanks, TCM, for having "Hannah and Her Sisters" in your programming rotation. Those few viewers who may be put off by the story itself could focus on the impressive performances of virtually the entire cast, the as-always loving scenes of New York and clever use of subtitles accompanied by fabulous big band tunes. I'll always tune in.
Do we have to see this again?
- Robert Mann
TCM must have an obsession about this movie--they play it all the time with any excuse (this time oscars); the honors are undeserved, in the scheme of things, it is not more that a little above average entertainment; the characters, self absorbed and miscast, don't absorb me, and are not really all that funny. rm
Hannah and her Sisters
- Michael Whitty
Another better than normal Woody Allen film and he also won an Oscar for his screenplay "Hannah and Her Sisters" gets into the lives of three sisters in New York and their friends. Michael Caine and Diane Wiest won Oscars for their acting as we get into personal friendships and what can come out of these relationships. Here the attraction is how these characters change for the better because of how they relate to one another. Ever since "Annie Hall" Allen gets more occupied with how his characters grow and change and with "Hannah" he makes more progress especially with the Michael Caine and Barbara Hershey characters.

I pretty much agree with the previous reviewers. This is top drawer Woody Allen. Especially good are Michael Caine, Diane Wiest, and Max Von Sydow. My only criticism is that the scenes involving Woody Allen's hypochondria smack too much of "comic relief" that is not needed in this not very dark film. Give it an A minus.
Lust for Life
- Graham Thomas
One of Woody's best efforts. Subtle, wonderfully nuanced multilayered glimpse of real adults in adult emotional situations. Tempered by humor, it is an effective warm embrace of our human comedy.
- Hannah and Her Sisters
A masterful and mature mix of comedy and pathos by Director, screenwriter and co-star Allen. The Oscar-winning story covers a year in a series of complex relationships among three sisters. This is the most impressive ensemble in any Allen film, with Caine and Wiest winning Academy Awards for their supporting performances. There is pain under the humour, being important to character and plot. A great film from Allen that shows that life is well worth living, and this is a picture worth watching. I give it a 5/5.
What a cast
What a cast, especially the women, Barbara Hershey, Mia Farrow, Carrie Fisher, Julie Louis Dreyfus, Maureen O'Sullivan (Tarzan's lovely young Jane). Any one of them would be a joy to have in the sack.
Another Woody Allen masterpiece
Hannah and her Sisters has a great cast of characters and Woody Allen creates another splended film. A true marvel at work in both acting and Directing.
