I had to get a couple hours of sleep after this movie. So devastating, it killed my soul. Great performances and brutally realistic.
View all A Woman Under the Influence reviews
This uncompromising portrait of domestic turmoil details the emotional breakdown of a suburban housewife and her family’s struggle to save her from herself. Gena Rowlands and Peter Falk give unforgettably harrowing performances as a married couple deeply in love but unable to express their ardor in terms the other can understand. This landmark American film is perhaps the most beloved work from the extraordinary John Cassavetes.

" Mabel Longhetti played by Gena Rowlands "Whereas there are thousand times more serial murders on-screen than there are in real life, the reverse is true of nervous breakdowns. Mable has such a dilly it almost compensates for the imbalance"."

"14.2. DVD Uusintakatselu. Cassavetesin nerous on tässä niin ilmeistä, että on oikeastaan turha tuoda sitä erikseen esiin. Näennäisesti tässä ei juuri muuta tapahdu, kuin arkipäivää "vähän erikoisen perheen" sisällä sekä pari konfliktia, mutta on kuitenkin kaikki, mitä voi elokuvalta haluta. Realismin tavoittelu on äärimmäisen onnistunutta. Hektiset ja ahtaat lähikuvat hermostuttavat ja laajat stabiilikuvat taasen imevät täysin sisäänsä luoden tunteen, että on itse m"

"Gena Rowlands is fucking awesome here. Cassavetes explores the relationship between a mentally ill woman and his wrathful but loving husband. You gotta love this. "
