Deconstructing Harry is about a writer who feels frustrated with his life and he only seems to function in the fiction world of his books. Harry is creative but is life is a mess.

The story is great, always switching from reality to fiction. Very funny and smart.
The editing in this film is very interesting, very different than what Woody Allen usually to do.

I really loved the idea of the "out-of-focus" actor, it was brilliant! Woody Allen is a great writer and very loyal to his own style and I admire that.
