There are so many beautiful elements at play here. There is the impressive story of romance and youth, told with sharp and understanding dialogue and humanistic acting. There is the gorgeous black and white photography and the nostalgic throwbacks to old-style cinema editing. And there is Allen's own love affair with New York City, documented as a backdrop for a story that is charming, funny, and altogether life-affirming. Besides Annie Hall, the director's best work.

When my dad recorded Manhattan on TV I didn't understand why. A black and white movie from the 70's didn't really impressed on me.. before I've had seen it. But one night I saw the movie because I didn't have something else to look at and it was over my expectations. A well written story with nice music fitted me perfect on that night. That the movie was in B/W just made it better. This movie is not that kind of movie you can see over and over again.

Never my favorite Woody Allen movie. I hate all the female characters which Woody usually does so well but fails in this film.

I admit that I do not fully understand the greatness of Woody Allen, but I can not help but look at his past movies and compare them to his present ones. Manhattan is a mediocre romantic movie with some dark comedy thrown in.

Allen is a director that... kind of lost his touch with the time. Not that he's making bad movies. Not at all. But none is compared with the early Allen. This one, Annie Hall and Zelig are Masterpieces. I specially love the cinematography and the editing. The shot in the bridge is priceless.
