Lots of blogs like to rehash the same Woody Allen film over and over again: “Annie Hall.” While it’s a great movie, and Diane Keaton’s ties and khakis are certainly iconic, I wanted to take a road less traveled.
Woody Allen has always cited filmmaker Ingmar Bergman as one of his favorite artists and one of his greatest influences, and Allen’s 1978 movie “Interiors” is an homage to the Swedish director. It’s a sparse, contemplative drama about the lives of three sisters. It’s also strikingly beautiful. From the neutral tones of its sets, to the understated wardrobe of its main characters, the film has a style all its own.
And its style reflects the mood of the movie. Allen says he tried not to include a single joke in the screenplay which, if you are familiar with his other work, is quite out of character for his writing. Similarly, the characters are dressed humorlessly, yet flawlessly. The clothes are classic and serious. Here are some modern pieces to help capture the mood of “Interiors.”
