Marion is a woman who has learned to shield herself from her emotions. She rents an apartment to work undisturbed on her new book, but by some acoustic anomaly she can hear all that is said in the next apartment in which a psychiatrist holds his office. When she hears a young woman tell that she finds it harder and harder to bear her life, Marion starts to reflect on her own life. After a series of events she comes to understand how her unemotional attitude towards the people around her affected them and herself.

Film Review

When Woody Allen is at the top of his form, as he is here, he can be counted among the best directors. Allen also wrote the screenplay and this is one of his "serious" works. Although intense, it is not depressing. Nobody has a better take on the foibles, neuroses, and temperaments of upper class intellectuals than Allen. The approach here is more of understanding and compassion than cynical.The story is that of Marion Post (Gena Rowlands), a German scholar and head of the philosophy department at an exclusive college. It appears that Marion could give Martha Stewart a run for her money as to living the perfect life. She is married to a successful cardiologist, has an active social life, is a respected academic, is physically attractive, dresses with taste, and lives in an elegantly decorated house. She is on sabbatical and beginning to write a book. A confluence of events conspire to expose to Marion what a price she has paid to live her perfect life. She comes to see how s…

Sedate and as fleeting as a paperback novel (despite its penchant for high-toned literacy), Woody Allen's "Another Woman" is a seemingly deeply-felt sonata about a 50-ish female writer in New York City who comes to the realization her current state of upscale well-being is a sham. Allen excels in sequences of chatty couples interacting, with the dynamics of two sparking something unintended; he also loves delving into the romantic complications between teacher and student, usually with infidelity a key ingredient, and all of those aspects work their way into this story, which has a moral, grounded center despite the cheating adults (even a younger teen gets a guilty moment, having sex in a forbidden place, but of course she feels cheap afterward!). Allen loves a contradiction as well as any writer, but his main character (played stunningly by Gena Rowlands, who also narrates) is living in the subconscious, and is forced into continually being enlightened. This is handle…

1988's Another Woman has been heralded here on Film General for years, so I added it to my Netflix queue last year. I finally got around to watching this Woody Allen film, and I can see why it is so loved and respected.I'm not an over-the-top Allen fan. I laugh along with his slapstick films (Bananas, Take the Money & Run), and I enjoy his social-commenting films (Manhatten, Annie Hall), and I even appreciate his darker films (Interiors).Another Woman was gripping from the first scene; I'm not sure who deserves more credit, the always-amazing Gena Rowlands for her acting, or Allen for his writing and directing. This is the kind of film that makes me lament the lack of roles for 50-something actresses, who just need a decent story to show us they were always more than just a pretty face.When I see something so well-written, it frustrates me with how much tripe we're forced to settle with. Is the industry simply incapable of consistent, quality writing, or does Holly…
