  • 10. 1977 -----A bittersweet romantic comedy of modern contemporary (at the time) love and urban relationships. ---------Explores the interaction of past and present. Monday, April 19, 2010
  • 11. Annie Hall capitalized on many of the ingredients that had been the content of Mr. Allen’s earlier films: - anti-Semitism -life -romantic angst -drugs -death -his obsessive love of New York, his dislike of California (mostly L.A.) -fads and -intellectual pomposity -his introspective neuroses and pessimism -his requisite jokes and psychosexual frustration about sex, numerous put-downs of his own appearance and personality, and distorted memories of his childhood Monday, April 19, 2010
  • 12. The film's more sensitive and realistic (still-comical) yet serious-minded tone about an intimate and emotional relationship appealed to all film-goers, not just Woody Allen fans. Monday, April 19, 2010
  • 13. With five nominations, the film was a four-time Academy Award winner: Best Actress (Diane Keaton with her sole Oscar win), Best Picture (Charles H. Joffe, producer), Best Director (Woody Allen), and Best Original Screenplay (Woody Allen and Marshall Brickman). It defeated the science-fiction blockbuster Star Wars (1977) for Best Picture. Monday, April 19, 2010
  • 14. The film influenced fashion designers (with the masculine, androgynous "Annie Hall" look.) Monday, April 19, 2010
  • 15. A theme of the film may be that although there are limitations in life (death and loss are the two most prevalent), art forms (such as the printed word, films, and plays) have the power to reshape reality and provide some measure of control, thereby compensating for life's limitations. Monday, April 19, 2010
  • 16. Cinematic technique utilized to communicate theme Direct addresses to the camera Reminiscent of Ingmar Bergman films, and films such as Strange Interlude (1932), or Alfie (1966) with Michael Caine Memory-flashbacks and other flashbacks Influenced, in part, by Citizen Kane (1941) Monday, April 19, 2010
  • 17. Interjections into the scene. --Reminiscent of Bergman's Persona (1960) vignettes Adult time-travel back to childhood Reminiscent of Bergman's Wild Strawberries (1957) The sudden production of a real- life character ( "Boy, if life were only like this") Author Marshall McLuhan appears, to conveniently settle an argument Monday, April 19, 2010
  • 18. “Annie and I broke up. And I still can't get my mind around that. You know, I keep sifting the pieces of the relationship through my mind, and examining my life and trying to figure out where did the screwup come, you know. A year ago, we were in love, you know.” “The film searches for his answer to the question - Why did they break up? (and by implication, why does contemporary love die?) “ Monday, April 19, 2010
  • 19. Introductory shot: Our first look at Annie...somewhere in the middle of the relationship. Monday, April 19, 2010
  • 20. Cinematic approach to contrasting families Split-screen conversation Monday, April 19, 2010
  • 21. Her mentor: Monday, April 19, 2010
  • 22. Another split screen: "Rashomon Effect" Observers of an event are able to produce substantially different but equally plausible accounts of it. Monday, April 19, 2010
  • 23. As Annie's singing and talent improves, so does her confidence, personal strength, and independence. She ultimately becomes less self- conscious and less self- effacing. In a performance which contrasts sharply with her nervous singing debut, she confidently sings solo at her Manhattan club - it is a warm, bluesy, beautiful rendition of "Seems Like Old Times" that commemorates the warmth of their renewed relationship....but further diminishes Alvy’s dominance. Monday, April 19, 2010
  • 24. California trip Voice-over commentary Their mismatched relationship downturns for many reasons - misunderstandings, possessiveness and jealousy, different goals, interests, hang-ups, and moods, and plain irrationality. Monday, April 19, 2010
  • 25. “You know how you're always trying to get things to come out perfect in art because, uh, it's real difficult in life.” Scenes from the relationship Ends as it began with an old joke . Monday, April 19, 2010
  • 26. Create a narrative or scene depicting the start, rise, and fall of a contemporary (2010) relationship. Utilize at least one of the cinematic techniques used in Annie Hall. ---direct addresses to the camera --memory-flashbacks --adult time-travel back to childhood --interjections into the scene --the sudden production of a real-life character --split screens --dialogue between two scenes in a split screen. ---introspective voice-overs Monday, April 19, 2010
  • 27. Time magazine Woody Allen Interview Monday, April 19, 2010
