English An atypically purely serious and surprisingly also quite depressing story of one storm, without the usual self-irony. But there it lacks Woody Allen in an acting role and Elaine Stritch's not-quite-convincing presence strongly hinders. The reason I consider September to be among the director's least successful films is mainly because, in addition to Lane, the characters lack a bit more depth. ()

English Amazing. I mean, September is a very sad, even depressing film, but Woody Allen (an eternal, though often quite latent optimist) still managed to give it an ending that has enough hope to warm you up in the end. I still prefer Allen's comedies, but September is a truly masterful piece. Just like Another Woman. ()
