When Jack and Sally announce that they’re splitting up, this comes as a shock to their best friends Gabe and Judy. Maybe mostly because they also are drifting apart and are now being made aware of it. So while Jack and Sally try to go on, the marriage of Gabe and Judy gets more and more strained.

It's certainly picked up an added subtext given the scandal of the last 25 years. But even if Allen and the Farrows hadn't blown up the internet with a complicated, unwinnable debate, this'd still be one of his most brilliant, corrosively honest films, a look at lies we tell ourselves (sometimes with good reasons, sometimes not) and the elusiveness of lasting satisfaction. And he gave the most soulful role to Mia.
Das Leben bietet uns diese romantischen Versionen an, um sie uns sofort wieder wegzunehmen. In dem Moment, da unsere Illusionen zu Fleisch werden, beginnen die Haare auszufallen. Die wahre Liebe aber liebt auch das, was nicht perfekt ist. Woody Allens Charaktere in Husbands And Wives finden das für sich heraus. Leider wohl zu spät, um ihrem Regisseur dabei im echten Leben zu dienen...
Let me first say, Juliette Lewis is one of the most underrated actors of all time. Let me also say that this movie is stunningly shot and edited. The documentary aspect of the movie adds a level of grit to an already gritty movie. The acting is GREAT all around (especially from Lewis imo). I love this movie to death, and I will watch it again to soak up more layers.
Another Woody Allen masterpiece. It's a heartbreakingly honest piece in which Allen and Farrow crumble in front of the cameras. It's powerful and haunting, bolstered by a crazy supporting performance by Judy Davis as the hot mess that is Sally. It's a feast. Thank you for your art, Woody!
amazing writers, real characters....amazing performance by judy davis. I can totally see why she won best supporting actress. one of the best movies I've seen about relationships, right up there with Woody's Manhattan.
