To be fair, it's an absolute classic.
You might not automatically associate Quentin Tarantino with romcoms. While he's not averse to throwing a bit of comedy into his films, you probably err more towards killing than cuddles when thinking about his films.
But as a former video store clerk, the now world-renowned filmmaker has watched hundreds of different types of movies of all genres. In fact, it was the hours he spent watching films that inspired him to go his own way when it came to his own movie-making career.
And speaking to Jimmy Kimmel, Tarantino talked about films that he describes as 'perfect'. A perfect film, he said, 'crosses all aesthetics' and even if it's not 'your cup of tea... there's nothing you can say to bring it down'.
Films that have made his list include The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Jaws, The Exorcist and, somewhat surprisingly, the 70s romcom Annie Hall.
Starring Diane Keaton and Woody Allen (who also directed), Annie Hall is a 1977 comedy that explores sexuality, femininity and masculinity through the lens of the relationship and history of Alvy Singer (Woody Allen) and Annie Hall (Diane Keaton). It's packed full of humour, but still manages to delve into some deep issues in a way that stays with the viewer.
It's certainly a movie that has stood the test of time, with its themes still relevant 46 years later. It was also a film that marked a watershed moment in Woody Allen's career. Indeed, in the book Woody Allen on Woody Allen: In Conversation with Stig Bjorkman, the legendary director describes Annie Hall as his 'first step toward maturity... in making films'.
Although he had focused on comedies before writing Annie Hall, they had tended to be more traditional and light-hearted. With this film, which was critically acclaimed on release, he opted for a different kind of humour. It was in many ways more sophisticated and intelligent. And it set him on a different path – one that would earn him much admiration over the years.
And it clearly had an impact on Quentin Tarantino. While it may be difficult to draw direct comparisons between Annie Hall and any of Tarantino's own work, the idea that cinematography allows you to explore anything in any way you see fit is certainly something that moviegoers associate with the work of Quentin Tarantino.
And now we know that even the genius behind Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained likes to sit back and enjoy a romcom every now and then.
