Woody-Harry-Ken obsessed with women, all women, the neighbor, the saleswoman, the elevator girl, the sister-in-law, except his wife. Glory to ALLEN for this humor masterpiece about our dear male fantasy == Woody-Harry-Ken obsédé par les femmes, toutes les femmes, la voisine, la vendeuse, celle de l'ascenseur, la belle-soeur, sauf sa femme. Gloire à ALLEN pour ce chef d'oeuvre d'humour sur notre cher fantasme masculin
Somewhere between "Wild Strawberries" and "8 1/2", it's as classical Woody as you can get. And still, even if you can say the same for at least five more of his films, there is still a dose of freshness and good humor, even if 90's Allen was a grumpy old geezer who would rather write about his issues than be personally engaged with them (like in Annie Hall or Manhattan). It may not be as subversive, but I bought it.
It's my least favorite Woody Allen's movie I've seen so far. Harry the main character is an unlikeable asshole and I could barely stand him through the whole movie. But maybe that's the point. I like the occasionally hysterical dialogue and the "deconstructing" sequences. The literally out-of-focus guy story is brilliant. And the lowest-level-hell scene is absurdly amusing. Think I should give it a rewatch next time.
