Lovely scenery, decent soundtrack but not much else going for it. Slightly disturbing to see a 42 year old Woody Allen sleeping with a 17 year old girl.

Good - Manhattan (1979) *** 96 min. starring Woody Allen, Diane Keaton and Mariel Hemingway - Oscar nominated film in 1980 (Hemingway received a supporting actress nomination and Woody Allen received an Original Screenplay nomination). Interesting tidbit about the movie is that it is one of Allen’s most successful films in terms of box office gross and yet, he wasn’t too thrilled over the outcome of the film. Personally, the film is an ode to everything Manhattan. There are great shots of the Brooklyn Bridge, Central Park, etc. all in glorious black & white shot with a 2:35 widescreen lens. The comedy is not the greatest but the situations and characters still make this film a brilliant piece of work. The scene between Keaton and Allen and the uncomfortable scenes with Allen and Hemingway (being so young) are fascinating character studies. The story is about Allen reeling from a recent divorce, his affair with a high school student, his obsession with ensuring that his ex-wife doesn’t print anything negative about him in her book and his interest in Keaton. Try to guess how this one ends? Note that Meryl Streep continues her Kramer vs. Kramer persona in this film. Overall, a good picture and a must for all Woody Allen fans (despite what Woody says)
