When Jack and Sally announce that they're splitting up, this comes as a shock to their best friends Gabe and Judy. Maybe mostly because they also are drifting apart and are now being made aware of it. So while Jack and Sally try to go on and meet new people, the marriage of Gabe and Judy gets more and more strained, and they begin to find themselves being attracted to other people.

Husbands and Wives is a great film full of great performances. It explores marriage life and all of its complexities. Very intelligent and also funny in some situations.

This tells the story of two couples. One of the couples were going through a tough phase and they decided to get a divorce. The other couple pretend to be happy before their friends, but afterall are not so well too. All of the charaters thoughts, opinions and feelings about each other are shared with us. We slowly start to discover the virtues and weaknesses of each character.

The film is shot like it's a documentary and some of the camera work is like an hidden camera secretly shooting the characters, a little shaky sometimes, not tipical of Woody but I found it very interesting.

Another great of Woody Allen that needs to continue to be praised.
