Manhattan

[15]

United States 1979, 96 mins
Director: Woody Allen
Starring: Meryl Streep, Woody Allen, Diane Keaton

Woody Allen’s rapturous, poignant, romantic comedy about the fretful life of an obsessive writer of TV comedy (Allen), worrying over his current, ex and future relationships (with Hemingway, Streep and Keaton), his hypochondria and his contemplated switch to serious literature.

A declaration of love to cerebral life and fashion in the city Allen has made his own, set to George Gershwin and filmed in silvery widescreen monochrome by Gordon Willis..
