Isaac Davis (Woody Allen) is a TV writer, frustrated in both career and his lovelife. An on-off affair with teenage drama student Tracy (Mariel Hemingway) is blighted by his anxiety about their age difference, whilst his attraction to the pretentious Mary (Diane Keaton) is complicated by the fact that she is already having an affair with his married friend Yale (Michael Murphy). Meanwhile, his lesbian ex-wife (Meryl Streep) prepares to dish the dirt about their marriage in a forthcoming book. Often cited as Allen’s masterpiece, ’Manhattan’ features a George Gershwin soundtrack.

MANHATTAN is "THE ONLY TRULY GREAT AMERICAN FILM OF THE 70s"

..according to influential American film critic Andrew Sarris. Granted, this is high praise indeed! But once you surrender swiftly to Woody Allen's most achingly romantic, poignant film, listen to the lush and beautiful George Gershwin music score, marvel at Gordon Willis' shimmering monochrome photography of the Big Apple at its most seductive, and I guarantee you will find it very hard to disagree with Sarris' famous comment.

Add in to the mix Diane Keaton and Mariel Hemingway at their (respectively) funniest and most youthfully heart-warming, some of the sharpest, most hilarious Allen dialogue on celluloid ("he had..the sexual prowess of a coiled jungle cat"!!), and, quite frankly film fans, you simply MUST have this wonderful film in your collection.

Finally, before I really do over-eulogise over Woody's masterpiece (a minority view but one I've held for 25 years) it is also worth noting that Allen's portrait of middle-class New York life remains unsurpassed. For those of you fortunate enough to have visited this great city, you will instantly recognise both the well known landmarks and, quite probably, even some of the lesser known but distinctly recognisable Manhattan nightclubs, cafes and other locations that give the Big Apple its lasting charm and character.

Watch this film and cherish it's swooning romanticism and sharp analysis of middle class intellectual life; you will be delighted and want to watch it every time you see or read anything about NYC again..
