door hard to open

Hello. I have a 96 318is 2DR. The problem i have is that it takes a significant amount of strength to open the doors (both doors) and then when I close them i have to slam them in order to close them properly (otherwise the lights inside stay on...so that's an indicator). What can I do to change that? is it just the door handle?
I appreciate any help!
