Largely considered Woody Allen’s greatest and best-loved film, Annie Hall was released in 1977 to wide critical and commercial success. The film, which Allen cowrote, directed, and starred in, tells the story of a failed romance within the frame of 1970s–era New York City—a romance based loosely on Allen’s real-life relationship with actress Diane Keaton, whose given name was Diane “Annie” Hall. Annie Hall won four Academy Awards, including Best Pi

بهترین فیلمی بود که از وودی آلن دیده بودم و بعدش دیگه هیچکدوم از باقی کارهاش به من لذت تماشای آنیهال رو نمیداد. فکر کردم حالا دوباره این لذت رو با کلمهها تجربه کنم. راضی بودم.

در ادامه باید بگم که خوبترین ویژگی اثر دست کم برای من، شخصیت اصلی بود. آدمها حداقل یکبار در بخشی از زندگیشون شبیه الوی سینگر میشن. در رابطهها و در از دست دادنها. در برخوردشون با دنیا و بیزاری از چیزای ساده و پیش پا افتاده. باقی آدمها سعی میکنن وضعیت رو عوض کنن و زودتر همرنگ جماعت شن. الوی ولی توی اون وضعیت باقی میمونه.

می‌دونین، این اواخر چیزهای عجیب‌غریبی به ذهنم اومده، شاید دلیلش چهل‌ساله‌شدن باشه. حدسم اینه که دارم وارد یک بحران یا چیزی تو این مایه‌ها می‌شم، نمی‌دونم، نگران قضیه‌ی سن و سال نیستم. از اون جور آدم‌ها نیستم، می‌دونین، دارم کچل می‌شم، اما این موضوع کم‌ترین اهمیتی برام نداره. فکر می‌کنم... هر چی سنم بالاتر می‌ره بهتر می‌شم، می‌دونین؟ به نظرم بر خلاف چیزهایی که می‌گن مثلاً موی خاکستری متین و سنگینه، من دارم از اون کچل‌های جذاب می‌شم. با این‌حال شبیه هیچ‌کدوم این آدم‌ها نیستم. مگر اینکه یکی از ...more

Di uova e squali morti, di amori con tredici emme.

El libro se resume en:

“It reminds me of that old joke- you know, a guy walks into a psychiatrist's office and says, hey doc, my brother's crazy! He thinks he's a chicken. Then the doc says, why don't you turn him in? Then the guy says, I would but I need the eggs. I guess that's how I feel about relationships. They're totally crazy, irrational, and absurd, but we keep going through it because we need the eggs.”

Annie Hall es sobre las relaciones, sobre afrontar, sobre seguir y tomar decisiones. E

Mi primera experiencia leyendo un guión, pensé que sería un poco aburrido, pero fue genialidad pura, y es que no por nada Annie Hall está catalogada como una de las mejores comedias románticas del cine, un fiel retrato sobre las relaciones que fácilmente se puede resumir con el siguiente párrafo:

"...me acordé de aquel viejo chiste, ya saben, el del tipo que va a ver al psiquiatra y le dice: «Doctor, mi hermano se ha vuelto loco. Se cree que es una gallina». Y el médico le contesta: «Bueno, ¿y po

اوایل فکر می کردم هر فیلم را باید قبل از خواندن کتاب مربوطه دید. تمام مدت بازیگران فیلم، بجای شخصیت ها می رفتند و می آمدند. بعد به این نتیجه رسیدم که کتاب را پیش از دیدن فیلم، بخوانم. حالا شخصیت هایی که موقع خواندن متن، در ذهنم مجسم کرده بودم، با شخصیت های فیلم جدل داشتند، گاه نمی پسندیدم، گاه بکلی متفاوت بودند... بالاخره دیدم هیچ فرمولی کامل نیست.
در مورد آثار وودی آلن، به ویژه آنها که خود کارگردانی کرده، هیچ تفاوتی نمی کند کتاب را اول بخوانید، یا فیلم را ببینید، چون تقریبن همیشه شخصیت ها در فی

I feel like I can pretty sensibly make the claim that Annie Hall is the greatest screenplay written in English, in the 20th century, that didn't involve Preston Sturges or Billy Wilder. In other words, I really love this screenplay. That the movie's even better is kind of astonishing. Almost nothing makes me laugh as much as this does, and few pieces of writing are more perfectly and simply poignant. I guess this is just a lot of seemingly hyperbolic praise, but I struggle to write well about my ...more

Why is it so good?

Is it just that no moment is dull? Is it that every moment is either hysterically funny or sad? Is it that the story so encapsulates important ideas?

This is my first incursion into reading scripts or movie adaptations, and though I am not always satisfied with the films of Woody Allen, Annie Hall is one of my favorites from this director.

The story revolves around a couple... Alvy Singer and Annie Hall, which is far from the typical romantic comedy couple, they focus more on the conflicts and differences that occur with each other than in the romantic moments.

The narrative takes us between the ruptures and reconciliations, analyzing how the c

Guión original de la película del mismo nombre.

Divertido libro sobre las relaciones personales, sobre todo de pareja, visto desde el peculiar prisma de Woody Allen.

El último párrafo del libro da una idea general:

You have to give it to him really...Woody Allen is a marvellous writer, especially since he can take the most annoying and difficult of characters and turn them into a sense of revelation. Alvy...to say the least, is a downer. But he wants love and he's found it in the form of Annie Hall. They date, they love and then...well...they stop. And Alvy is trying to find out why?

As an amateur screenplay writer, Allen really is up there with creating scripts that really come alive. And I'm amazed at ho

"هذا الرجل حالة فريدة من نوعها فى السينما فهو من ضمن فئة المخرج الذى عليك ان تقرأ قبل ان تشاهد وليس العكس فهو فيلسوف منحوه كاميرا فلك ان تتصور ماذا سيصور؟ لا تنتظر من آلان إنحياز الى معنى او إتخاذ موقف او عرض حلول بل هو ينقل لك الوجود كما هو وليس كما ينبغى ان يكون..النمط الفريدة لوودى آلان هو ان افلامه غير صالحة للتأويل لأنه ببساطة هو المخرج الذى يطرح سؤال : لماذا التأويل أصلا؟

I am a lot naive when it comes to the legacy and oeuvre of Woody Allen , having seen only 1 movie of his , Vicky Christina Barcelona, but had definitely heard a lot about Annie Hall , as one of the definitive films of that era. Reading the script justifies it so. The wit, bitter-sweet romance, and wry,nonchalant humor just made reading the script feel like gliding through it. It was a delicious and crunchy treat for its realistic take on modern-day relationships and of course, the adorable ...more

One can learn a thing or two from Woody Allen.
All the accolades and praise encouraged me to pick up this script. I was hoping to get some valuable insights or life changing epiphanies during the couple of hours of reading.
I enjoyed the beginning and ending, but I often got frustrated the rest of the time. There were too many things going on for me and too much of him...
I sympathize more with laconic and restful authors

The script in itself is a masterpeice, as is the film. The problem here is that all the prose describing the action was not written by Allen or Brickman, rather it was added by the publisher. So all this book really gives you is the dialogue, offering nothing behind what we can see on screen. This essentially defeats the purpose of reading a screenplay, and while even reading the dialogue is enjoyable - watching the film is a thousand times better.

Annie Hall being one of my long-standing favourite movies, it was only natural I 'had to' read the script. What can I say - a real stunner!

“I feel that life is divided into the horrible and the miserable. That's the two categories. The horrible are like, I don't know, terminal cases, you know, and blind people, crippled. I don't know how they get through life. It's amazing to me. And the miserable is everyone else. So you should be thankful that you're miserable, because that's very lucky, to be miserable.” 916 likes
