"Chapter One. He was as tough and romantic as the city he loved. Beneath his black-rimmed glasses was the coiled sexual power of a jungle cat. I love this. New York was his town, and it always would be..."

So much about this film was said since it's release in 1979, that I feel that I won't say anything new here. But I'm going to write something about it anyways, because I love this film.

Isaac Davis (Woody Allen) is a divorced writer of TV shows unhappy with his job. His ex-wife, Jill (Meryl Streep) left him to live with another woman and is writing a book about her relationship with... read more

One of Woody's master piece, Manhattan shows the complexity of the relationships in a simple and funny way (Allen's best charecteristic).
With quick jokes about judaism, the city of new york, relationships, religion and philosophy mixed with the cultural side of Allen, makes this film a classical one.
A film that you will see more than one time.

Description: On the heels of Annie Hall, the Oscar-winning romantic comedy that rocketed Woody Allen to the front ranks of American filmmakers, Manhattan continued Allen's romantic obsessions in a slightly darker, more pessimistic vein. Allen stars as Isaac Davis, a TV comedy writer sick of the pap he is forced to churn out and harboring dreams of being the great American novelist. His love life is in barbed-wire territory: he is tormented by his second ex-wife Jill (Meryl Streep), a lesbian who has written a tell-all book about their marriage, and he is dating teenager Tracy (Mariel Hemingway), to whom he refuses to commit, and keeps hintin ...

"9.10. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Manhattania voisi kai luonnehtia romanttiseksi komediaksikin, mikä ei niin sanotusti ole ihan mun juttuni, mutta näin laadukkaalla teknisellä toteutuksella, erityisesti vaikuttava visuaalinen ilme, katsoisi sitä ihan ilokseen sisällöstä sen kummemmin välittämättä. Elokuvan onneksi, ei siinäkään valittamista ole. Enemmän tai vähemmän ärsyttävien oman elämänsä älykköjen välillä absurditkin mittasuhteet saavat murheet jaksavat vaivatta kiinn"

"Another great example from Allen how to write excellent, followable dialogue as well as direct a heartwarming romance, which happen to contain one of the heartbreaking brake-ups I've seen on film. Seeing Allen films always makes me wanna write something simple, but meaningful, or not so, and on that note I might blow off the dust from my keyboard, figurative speaking, and start writing something. Anything!"

However, after all these years, I came to the conclusion that it's just too bad that the guy keeps making a movie every single year. Indeed, basically, it is basically impossible to produce a great picture EVERY freaking year. Instead, he basically settles with an average movie which is just very sa"
