Underwhelming in part because this film revisits and relies a lot on similar themes and subplots from the previous films
Wow, that's awesome.
What sort of stuff?

I've not seen the 5 hour version, didn't know it existed.
I've seen the tv 4 episode (once) and the 3 hour movie a couple of times; both in cinema and on tv. The movie is better than the episodes, and last night I recognized not one boring scene, just good direction, interesting characters and a touching and dramatical story. Maybe build on Bergman's own childhood, at least many parallels to his life.
Allen is a great admirer of Bergman, but I didn't know before today that Hannah and her Sisters is heavily influenced. Never thought of it, but you might be right. The story in Fanny och Alexander is fare more complex and involves more stories and characters. And more drama, not to forget.
