Woody Allen Amerika Serikat, 1979

Rafael Zen's rating of the film Manhattan

I don't know why, but Allen's cinema always looks overrated to me. Although Manhattan has beautiful urban scenes, it's a very pseudo-intelectual film about the urge of being less lonely: being that, it does not evoke any kind of emotion in me - it's not particularly funny or sad, it's contemporary adult-kids going cerebral. Thumbs up for the cast - it's a very cool ensemble.
