Another Woman (Woody Allen – 1988) B+

This feels like Woody Allen doing Ingmar Bergman. Allen did several movies that overtly mimic the Swedish director’s work whom he really admires. I do not think I’ve seen too many of those but I will focus on them soon. This one is the story of Marion, an author, who is writing a book but becomes entranced by a series of conversations she can over hear through the pipes of her old NY apartment. The conversations are those of a pregnant woman talking to her psychiatrist. These seem to cause her to examin her marriage, life choices and her future decisions. Typical of many of Allen’s movies from that time it focuses on relationships, love and fidelity. Ultimately it is not as solid as something like Hannah and Her Sisters but it is another good work by one of my favorite directors.
