About Us



To When Harry Met Sally poses the question, ‘Can men and women be friends or does sex always get in the way?’
This is a genuinely funny romantic comedy and an exploration of the differences in behaviour between men and women.  Acutely observed and witty, the script perfectly captures insights into the psyche of both genders, and the Woody Allen-esque dialogue represents the sparkling way that we all wish we were able to talk to each other in real life.

Apart from the screenplay, what makes this film special is the chemistry between Harry (Billy Crystal) and Sally (Meg Ryan), who make a good movie couple because both actors are able to suggest genuine warmth and tenderness.  Their characters drive the film, and we come to know a lot and care a lot about them.

Directed by Rob Reiner, the man behind the classic ‘rockumentary’ This Is Spinal Tap, and written by Nora Ephron, who also wrote Sleepless in Seattle and You’ve Got Mail (both of which starred Meg Ryan), When Harry Met Sally is a perfect relationship story with enchanting views of New York and an excellent, jazzy soundtrack which boasts arrangements and performances by Harry Connick Jnr, who’s style matches and enhances the mood of the film.

Highly recommended.
