Storyline

When Jack and Sally announce that they're splitting up, this comes as a shock to their best friends Gabe and Judy. Maybe mostly because they also are drifting apart and are now being made aware of it. So while Jack and Sally try to go on and meet new people, the marriage of Gabe and Judy gets more and more strained, and they begin to find themselves being attracted to other people.

Trivia

After Love and Death (1975), Woody Allen would again utilize the three word title with an "and" middle word on several more occasions. These would be for Husbands and Wives (1992), Shadows and Fog (1991), Sweet and Lowdown (1999), Melinda and Melinda (2004) and Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989). Love and Death (1975) was Allen's first film in which he used this type of three word title. Similar also was Allen's title for Hannah and Her Sisters (1986). See more »

A NY Version of Bergman's "Scenes From a Marriage"
22 August 2001 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews



I am surprised that so few people mention that this film is so obviously inspired by Bergman's television series - which was later edited into a film.

As Scenes from a Marriage is perhaps my favourite Bergman film, it makes sense I guess that this is my favourite Woody Allen film.

If you like this film, I would highly recommend Bergman's "Scenes" and vice versa.

Regarding H&W, it is great in that it uncovers the savagery involved in love and breakups that many films gloss over. There are also some touching moments, but for the most part the film is an investigation into the darker side of relationships and egos.

I love it!
