My Poster Problem | Deconstructing Harry

My Poster Problem | Deconstructing Harry

More poster posting…

This French poster for Woody Allen’s truly under-appreciated Deconstructing Harry (or, in French, Harry In All Of His States) is probably my favorite of the posters I own. I love the drawings of the characters and the isolated Woody on the right hand side in the red sweater; there is something about this poster that I adore. I picked this up on that same fateful afternoon in Cannes, and I am so glad I found it; I think this poster belongs in an apartment in New York City. I actually re-discovered my appreciation for the film after watching it a few years back. I talked with Arnaud Desplechin about Kings and Queen and he discussed how Susan Morse’s editing style in Deconstructing Harry (the repetition in the opening scene of Judy Davis getting out of the taxi, the jarring cut-aways to specific moments within a single shot, etc) was echoed in Desplechin’s own work (the scene in Kings and Queen when Emmanuelle Devos is crying on the phone from her father’s apartment is one that springs instantly to mind.) Say what you will, I think the hand-drawn quality and the use of color make this a great poster. Love it.
