Synopsis: Harry and Sally meet when she gives him a ride to New York after they both graduate from the University of Chicago. The film jumps through their lives as they both search for love, but fail, bumping into each other time and time again. Finally a close friendship blooms between them, and they both like having a friend of the opposite sex. But then they are confronted with the problem: «Can a man and a woman be friends, without sex getting in the way?»
Review: Can you beat some of the lines in this film? As a guy, which I am, I identified with Harry’s lines so much, and you can’t help but side with him.
The chemistry between the two actors, Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan is superb, and you believe in them when they talk, you feel for them when they look at each other. Even the friends are well casted, Carrie Fisher and Bruno Kirby. It’s such relaxed acting and filming that you do nothing but watch these people fall in love, and pretty soon you feel like you’re involved as well. With a fantastic soundtrack, direction, script and acting, When Harry Met Sally is a great film.
