One of Allen's Masterpieces

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.
