Middle-aged philosophy professor Marion Post (Gena Rowlands) would appear to have every advantage.  After all, she has a rock-solid professional reputation, an equally secure marriage and enough spare cash to be able to rent a separate flat in which to write her latest book without interruption. But she is interrupted, thanks to an accident of ventilation, by the therapy sessions going on in the psychiatrist’s office next door.  Voyeuristically fascinated, Marion is particularly struck by the way that the unhappy experiences of his patient Hope (Mia Farrow) mirror her own, and realises that her life is nowhere near as materially and emotionally secure as she’s been pretending.  And when she decides to rely less on her beloved logic and reason and open herself up to dreams, imagination and passion, the scene is set for a life-changing transformation.

English "I sat up in bed with my heart just pounding, and I looked at my husband next to me and it was as if he was a stranger and I turned the light and woke him up and I asked him to hold me...(sobs) and only after a long time did I finally get my bearings. But for one moment, earlier, it was as if a curtain had parted, and I could see myself clearly. But I was afraid of what I saw.". Some scenes can break a person down and make them look into their innermost self. With Woody Allen's brilliant female study, male viewers will have no problem. Woody, following in the footsteps of his favorite Ingmar Bergman, lets one striking female character after another make an impact and plays with metaphors. Hope (the character played by Mia Farrow is introduced by name only in the credits) takes Marion on important places where she should become aware of the key moments of her life and try to figure out their meaning. A film that can gnaw at the viewer so much that they are not entirely certain even with their closest people. ()

English Woody Allen once again plays with seriousness and lets the humor be humor... This time, however (at least from my point of view) it’s much more accessible and friendly than in the cold and uninteresting Interiors. It's definitely also a credit to the fantastic Gena Rowlands in the lead role. A very sensitive spectacle with beautiful music (how else). ()

English If I am keeping proper score, this is the seventeenth Woody Allen film I've seen. Among them were exceptionally good, very good, and average works, but never bad and uninteresting ones. I wouldn't dare to label Another Woman as a bad film, as it has traditionally high-quality cast and corresponding performances and a strong central theme. On the other hand, I have never been bored by any of Allen's stories, but unfortunately, this time the story of an aging woman going through a midlife crisis at the age of fifty, regretting her abortion, childlessness, decisions about love life and family relationships, simply couldn't draw me in. I prefer Woody Allen in his comedic and especially tragicomic position, which suits him better because he simply does it better. Another Woman lacks a certain comedic perspective that would have enlivened the dialogues and given the film a faster pace. Overall impression: 45%. ()
