Annie Hall Paperback / softback
by Woody Allen
Part of the FF Classics series
New York comedian Alvy Singer reflects ruefully upon a failed relationship.
When he first met Annie Hall on a tennis date, she was an insecure wallflower in trousers, vest and tie.
But they shared a self-deprecating sense of humour, plus certain deep-seated neuroses, and love soon blossomed.
Alvy supported Annie's hopes for a singing career and encouraged her to broaden her talents.
But ironically, her increasing self-assurance, coupled with Alvy's obsession with death and his seeming inability to enjoy himself ('Life is divided between the horrible and the miserable'), spelt trouble for their affair. Annie Hall is a bittersweet comedic masterpiece, rich in irony, invention, romantic insights and classic Woody Allen one-liners.
It won Academy Awards for Best Director, Best Actress, Best Original Screenplay and Best Picture of 1977.
