Annie Hall. Frases sueltas para ¿pensar?

Hoy he visto esta mítica película de Woody Allen, y la verdad, ha sido una buena elección para la primera lluvia de este otoño.


En la pelicula, Alvy Singer reflexiona de una forma muy particular sobre su vida. Es un pesimista empedernido, paranoico y humorista. Todo esto nos es narrado a partir de la relación que mantiene con Annie Hall, una joven aspirante a cantante.

La película es interesante, se habla de psicoanalisis, el amor, la familia, … hay veces que la escena se para y los personajes hablan directamente al espectador, es gracioso. En general me ha gustado la estética de la película y algunas escenas y frases, y eso era lo que quería guardar en esta entrada:

Dr. Flicker: Why are you depressed, Alvy?

Mrs. Singer: Tell Dr. Flicker. It’s something he read.

Dr. Flicker: Something you read, huh?

Alvy Singer: The universe is expanding.

Dr. Flicker: The universe is expanding?

Alvy Singer: Well, the universe is everything, and if it’s expanding, someday it will break apart, and that will be the end of everything.

Mrs. Singer: What is that your business? He’s stopped doing his homework.

Alvy Singer: What’s the point?

Mrs. Singer: What has the universe got to do with it. You’re here, in Brooklyn. Brooklyn is not expanding.

Dr. Flicker: It won’t be expanding for billions of years yet, Alvy. And we’ve gotta try and enjoy ourselves while we’re here. Huh? Huh? Huh?

After that it got pretty late, and, we both had to go, but it was great seeing Annie again. I realized what a terrific person she was and how much fun it was just knowing her, and I thought of that old joke. You know, this guy goes to his psychiatrist and says, “Doc, my brother’s crazy. He thinks he’s a chicken.” And the doctor says, “Well why don’t you turn him in?” The guy says, “I would, but I need the eggs.” Well, I guess that’s pretty much now how I feel about relationships– you know, they’re totally irrational and crazy and absurd, but, I guess we keep going through it because most of us need the eggs.
