Grad-school administrative head Marion Post (Gena Rowlands) is in the midst of writing a book. The walls are thin in the apartment she's taken for work purposes, and soon Marion begins listening to the sessions conducted by her neighbor, an analyst. One of the patients is Hope (Mia Farrow), whose marriage is in tatters. As Hope prattles on, Marion begins flashing back to highlights (and lowlights) of her own marriage. Her musings are constantly interrupted by the memory of the man (Gene Hackman) she'd once ardently loved. Later on, chance encounters with old friends force Marion to face the fact that she has lived her life sheltering herself from her true emotions. Director Woody Allen's career-long indebtedness to Ingmar Bergman is underlined in Another Woman via Bergman's frequent cinematographer Sven Nykvist. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Wonderful & contemplative film that reads like a long introspective poem. Gena Rowlands was sublime in this role. It's a movie that will stay with you for days after you have seen it. One of the last lines of this film had me chewing on it for days.."are our memories really something we keep...or something we have lost?" One other note - I disagree highly with a few that said if you liked Woody Allen's 'Sleeper' or 'Broadway Danny Rose' type films - you won't like this one. Not true at ALL (sez this Woody Allen fan)...I'll take any flavor of Woody he is serving up - and I am never disappointed.
I really enjoyed Another Woman. It's a thoughtful and introspective storyline about a woman (Gena Rowland) who rediscovers her true feelings and emotions about love and life. The woman's narrative made the storyline very ejoyable, clear, and easy to follow.
I saw this movie when it first came out and liked it very much. It's a star-studded cast and an interesting idea but I was not as impressed this time as I was when it was fresh. Still worth a watch - not typical Woody Allen by any means.
