Husbands and Wives (1992)

Dir. Woody Allen

Released after Woody Allen and Mia Farrow’s relationship had come to an end, Husbands and Wives was their final movie together. Filmed by Carlo Di Palma with a handheld camera and featuring documentary style one on ones with the characters, the film follows Gabe Roth (Allen) and his wife Judy (Farrow) who are taken aback by the casual announcement from their best friends, an upper-middle class Manhattan couple (the excellent Judy Davis and Sydney Pollack), that they are splitting up. Soon Gabe and Judy are analysing their own marriage. One of Allen’s best, it’s bleak but yet compelling.
