5 Reasons to Love Annie Hall



The cinematic depiction of the high and low notes of a romantic concerto

  • As typically Allen, the seamless sequences of the movie Annie Hall. The editing and scenes elevate the storytelling like an escalator and not stairs.anniehall1


  • The VW driven at breakneck speed with Annie (Diane Keaton) at the helm, symbolising the stormy relationship, while Mozart’s Jupiter symphony playing in the background, symbolic of the burning passion.


  • Annie Hall with all her quirks, mannerisms and eccentricities; a perfect match for the Alvy’s (Woody Allen) cynical, witty and mildly psychotic personality. As Alvy sums up his life “ You’re really trying for things to come out perfect in art, for its real difficult in life”
  • The lunch scene at Annie’s: The subtle differences between Jews and Christians (and also the invisible rift that exists between the two communities) captured by the camera of a satirist.


  • Inventive filmmaking elements on Annie Hall such as talking to the camera, the terrace conversation over wine with Annie, which is interlaced with yellow subtitles (Describing how one’s actually feeling), the animation with Alvy and the evil queen from Snow White, the childhood reminisces of Alvy, where Alvy as a grown up (Allen) appears in the flashbacks and comments analytically on the things which went wrong during his childhood years.
