Hannah and Her Sisters (1986)

Woody Allen's masterpiece! Here we get a sense of the struggle of man without any moral direction juxtaposed with a man searching for eternal answers (albeit comedically, and perhaps facetiously). A man is attracted to his wife's sister. Another sister laments her loneliness and inability to find success at the level of her sisters (in life and love). And finally, Hannah, who lives a virtuous life is being attacked on all fronts because of her virtue - poor thing!

Woody Allen plays Hannah's ex-husband who thinks he's dying and seeks an answer to life's great mystery: Is there life after death and if so, how should I live to best situate myself?

Quite an enjoyable film.
