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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Allen, whose comedies have been among the cheerful tonics of recent years, is astonishingly assured in his first drama.
One of the most sophisticated movies ever made about the universal vulnerability of the human situation, Interiors explores the downfall bred by obsessive perfectionism and the consuming desire to make one's life unique, masterfully working on that subtle metaphor between the interiors of life-worlds, in particular, the aesthetics of the flawless interiors that the mother loves to decorate, and the psychic interiority of these privileged and exquisite urban types fraught with intellectual and emotional insecurities, mental sickness, compulsive competitiveness, the burden of love and blood ties, and the obsession with death and the idea of the futility of all. Woody Allen at his best. Highly recommended.
A quiet, sophisticated and often tense character study with terrific acting on all fronts. Visually stylized, incredibly spare and beautifully nuanced, this film is art, pure and simple.
one of my favorite woody allen films
This is a smart and heart-breaking drama about family and relationships. Great direction, writing and acting. One of Allen's dark films, so don't expect sophisticated comedy.
