About the Film

This is Woody Allen's homage to Ingmar Bergman. E.G. Marshall and Geraldine Page portray the parents of three sisters: Diane Keaton, Kristin Griffith and Mary Beth Hurt. Marshall is wealthy; Page is mentally disturbed. When Marshall announces that he is leaving Page, she starts to totally disintegrate. Marshall plans to marry Maureen Stapleton. The three daughters rush to their mother's side to see her through her crisis. But the daughters have trials of their own: Keaton has a troubled marriage to a "hack" novelist (Richard Jordan); Hurt has great talent but is destructively unfocused; and Griffith is an overly self-centered television actress. How this family works out its difficulties is the focus of this stylish, brilliantly acted and impressively told story.

Customer Reviews


Tedious, pretentious, wooden-acted pap. Save your time and money and watch something, anything, by Bergman.

Brilliant but Not Typical Allen

I can understand why people would hate this, but I really enjoyed it! It is weirdly shot and full of tension. The central performance by Geraldine Page is extraordinary and the unfolding of the family's situation is skilfully done. Allen got a lot of stick for ripping off Bergman, but I've not seen any Bergman, so I was happy to enjoy the strange hypnotic pace! The use of colour is brilliant and Allen's contempt for the pretentious is ever present as the film focusses the damage caused to a family by its disturbingly meticulous matriarch.
