Woody Allen Amerika Serikat, 1979

Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film Manhattan

Perhaps the ultimate "New York" movie, Woody Allen's MANHATTAN is a lovely mosaic of New York life as seen through the eyes of Isaac Davis (Allen), a neurotic writer in love with two women - a sweet but naive 17 year old girl and a worldly fellow writer. Looks at Manhattan through the eyes of smoky old black and white photographs and Gershwin music, perfectly evoking the city's rhythms and atmosphere.
