      Love and Death is a very silly 1972 movie written and directed by the fantastic Woody Allen and I just re-watched it yet again. It cheered me up for at least three days after watching it, especially as the scene ‘No, you must be Don Fransisco’s sister’ kept playing over in my head. This is very funny and very silly in quite a Monty Python kind of way, but it does still manage to contain a lot

      of absurd philosophical conversations too.

      Set in 1812 Russia, Allen plays a cowardly Russian who is called up to serve his country in the army when Napolean invades. He upsets his mother who wants him to fight ‘My mother, folks!’ but he ends up becoming a hero when he is accidentally shot out of a canon, killing many of the French. It is that silly. If you are an Allen fan who loves Diane Keaton ...


      • too you will enjoy this as she plays his cousin who marries him only because she thinks he will die soon in a duel, only to find that he gets lucky again, much to her disgust, but they end up falling in love. As usual, Keaton is just a compliment to Woody Allen’s funny lines and she gets a lot of them and is a lot of fun to watch.

        There is a lot of slapstick in

        this – you know, Classic old Allen stuff about how clumsy he is etc – but it is still funny as he is the master after all. This silliness is juxtaposed with the intense philosophical conversations that him and Keaton enter into with some brilliant lines that I want to remember and quote to people eg. But objectivity is subjective etc etc. Love and Death is a great laugh so I recommend you watch and enjoy for some light relief.
